O que eu aprenderei?

The Department of Psychology offers a doctoral program in psychology with three concentrations. Two are Clinical Psychology concentrations (General Clinical and Child Clinical-Applied Behavior Analysis) that provide education and training in psychological science and practice to prepare individuals for licensure as doctoral-level psychologists in health-service fields. The third concentration is in Psychological Science (PSYS). This non-clinical concentration prepares individuals to work in a broad range of careers including education, health, government, and industry.

Overview of Concentrations

General Clinical Concentration

The General Clinical concentration embraces a scientist-practitioner training model in preparing individuals for licensure as doctoral-level psychologists in health-service fields that can include children, adolescents, and adults. The program focuses on the biological, psychological, behavioral, social and cultural influences on the development, assessment, and treatment of mental health, substance use, and behavioral disorders.

Child Clinical-Applied Behavior Analysis Concentration

The Child Clinical-Applied Behavior Analysis concentration embraces a scientist-practitioner model of training in health services psychology. Consistent with doctoral training in psychology, students receive experiences in a variety of domains including biological, affective, social, cognitive, and developmental aspects of behavior. Students will be trained with an emphasis on empirically supported and individualized assessment and intervention when working with clinical populations, consistent with outcomes-driven and problem-solving models. Students are also trained in the experimental and applied analyses of behavior underlying effective interventions for vulnerable populations.

Psychological Science Concentration

Students enrolling in the non-clinical concentration in Psychological Science (PSYS) will receive an education in the core scientific domains of psychology as well as training in psychological research and professional development. Emphasis is placed on training skilled researchers who will be prepared to work in a broad range of careers in education, health, and industry. Coursework is designed to provide disciplinary knowledge in the core domains of psychology and a solid foundation of quantitative and methodological skills. Students will engage in faculty-mentored research in one or more of the following areas: behavior analysis, behavioral pharmacology, cognitive, developmental, neuroscience, personality, and social. Training also includes experiential learning through career path exploration. Students earning their Ph.D. in the Psychological Science concentration will be able to pursue research-oriented careers in academic, industry, or government settings.
