Program Overview Clinical Psychology (MS)
The Clinical Psychology (MS) program will provide you with quality academic instruction, research experience, and supervised clinical training at a variety of mental health centers. At Barry University, we focus on training students to master the traditional clinical skills of evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. The theoretical orientation of the program is eclectic.
All graduate courses in the Department of Psychology at Barry University are offered in the evening to accommodate working professionals.
Field placement/internship courses (PSY 665 and PSY 675), which occur near the completion of training, require daytime availability.
The Clinical Psychology Practicum is an introduction to clinical activity and requires eight hours per week of supervised clinical work in a mental health setting for one semester. The Clinical Psychology Internship is a 1,000 hour, supervised clinical experience that allows for the development of more advanced clinical skills.
This program is designed to prepare you for continuing graduate education and careers in the area of mental health.
