The Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology prepares students to sit for the examination for licensure as a mental health counselor in Massachusetts, and equips students to help individuals who may have a variety of behavioral, cognitive, and emotional challenges. It may also serve as a steppingstone to further graduate training (PhD or PsyD). Students are exposed to a range of empirically supported therapeutic methods. Experiential learning is an essential component of the program, with 15 credits of practicum and internships required.
The MA program in Clinical Psychology is accredited by the Master’s in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC) (February, 2015 - February, 2025).
