Program

Our Clinical Psychology program is based on the latest clinical science and provides training in clinical assessment and intervention. We train psychologists, able to work in a wide range of professional contexts, who can provide evidence-based clinical services that are consistent with ethical and professional standards.

The first year program provides an intensive theoretical education coupled with some clinical applications. Students acquire extensive knowledge on child and adult psychopathology and gain basic understanding and skills related to psychological help, assessment and clinical research.

During the second year, the majority of modules are dedicated to psychotherapeutic process and to developing practical clinical skills. Students prepare their Master’s thesis and complete two 90-hour applied modules that include clinical training.

Requirements: English proficiency - IELTS 6.0; CAE 47-51; TOEFL iBT 69-70, TOEFL Computer-based 196; TOEFL Paper-based 525.

Candidate

The Clinical Psychology specialization is a good choice for students interested in mental and behavioral health, who want to help others to understand and overcome psychologically based distress and prevent emotional and social dysfunction in daily life. The program is appropriate for students who hold an undergraduate degree in Psychology or a related field of study. Students falling into the latter category are obliged to complete supplementary, free-of-charge, undergraduate psychology modules, by the end of the first year.

Career Prospects

Graduates of the Psychology Program have numerous professional opportunities and may pursue many career paths. Depending on their specialization and professional certifications, they may build successful careers as clinical psychologist, psychotherapists, social workers, counselors, behavior analysts (especially in the area of autism therapy), neuropsychologists, educational and academic psychologists, cross-cultural consultants, and life coaches.
