An interview is required for admission to the clinical psychology program. Students earn an MA en route to the PhD, but we do not admit students seeking a terminal master’s degree.

Most students accepted have an undergraduate major in psychology or its equivalent. Acceptance is based on training, quality of work, recommendations, GRE scores and other information.
