Generalist Foundation with Specific Concentrations
Varied faculty interests provide students with exposure to a broad range of theoretical perspectives and assessment, intervention, research/evaluation, consultation/education and management/supervision skills. Four emphases within the generalist program allow students to focus training on a specific area with its own defined curriculum, research programs, and clinical practica.
With diverse classes, students, and professional interests students will easily find classmates and colleagues who share their interests. Student-led groups offer mentoring support to incoming students, making them feel welcome from the start.
Our graduates have the knowledge and the skills to provide psychological services, including traditional areas of psychological assessment, psychotherapy, and applied research. We also teach the business, organizational, and political aspects of graduate psychology so that students can seek innovative leadership roles, launch a private practice, or take on a supervisory position at a mental health facility.
