The Master of Science in Clinical Psychology prepares students with both clinical and research skills. This 48-hour program includes a set of core courses, elective selections, practicum experiences, and a thesis project designed to prepare students for doctoral study. Additionally, this degree program prepares students wishing to pursue a professional career, at the Masters level, for instance as a Licensed Psychological Associate (LPA) or as a Research Assistant.
Prospective applicants should note that the MS in Clinical Psychology will not fully prepare students for licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Students interested in that professional outcome should consider the 60-hour MS in Counseling Psychology degree at ACU as most states require a 60-hour program to apply for licensure.
