About this course

The M.S. Practitioner Track program prepares students to begin employment in psychology under the supervision of a doctoral trained and licensed psychologist. However, M.S. Practitioner Track students more typically apply to Psy.D. programs of study, since these programs attract students who have a background in practica and internship experiences, as opposed to research and thesis requirements.

The master's practitioner track in clinical psychology provides intensive training in psychological assessment. Students study under the supervision of a doctoral-trained and licensed psychologist, enrolling in coursework that is typically required in the first year of the doctoral clinical psychology program.

The master's practitioner track in counseling psychology places great importance on personal and interpersonal functioning across a person's life span and prepares graduate students for counseling positions in private settings or licensure as mental health counselors.
