The Master of Psychology (Clinical) is a fifth- and sixth-year program in psychology open to graduates of an accredited fourth-year psychology program. Students will acquire knowledge and skills to prepare for professional practice and research in clinical psychology.

Students further develop ethical values, knowledge and professional skills in psychology, integrated by the scientist-practitioner model.
