Graduates with a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology have career options in a wide range of settings, including: entering the government workforce at the local, state, or federal level, working in marketing, academic advising, teaching social sciences in a secondary school, or psychology courses at the post-secondary level, working in corporate settings in education and training, human resources, corporate research, and much more. Graduates may also enter into a doctoral program (PsyD, PhD), which could qualify them for licensure in accordance with requirements of the state in which they are applying (students should always check with their state board for specific requirements).

Degree Requirements (42 credits)


Internship (6 credits)


Optional Thesis (12 credits)


Students in the clinical track have the option to complete an independent thesis if they so choose. Assignment of a thesis advisor will depend upon thesis topic. The time required to complete the MS thesis will depend upon each student. Typically students will complete the thesis in two years. After that time, the student may request one extension not to exceed one year. Honors students in the program who wrote an undergraduate Honors thesis may elect to write a more substantial MS thesis based on the same project the following year.
