The Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology program will prepare students to serve individuals, couples, families, and groups as a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) or a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) in California.
Designed for both working professionals and full-time students alike, this program provides a clinical and practice-based course of study, exploring the social and psychological implications of socioeconomics and how poverty and social stress affect the ability of individuals, couples, and families to thrive. Employing the practitioner-scholar model of professional training, rigorous coursework is paired with in-depth clinical training, where students observe professional counselors, develop key clinical skills, and gain experience working directly with clients. Upon graduation, students will have met all educational requirements to sit for the LMFT or LPCC licensure exams in the state of California.
This program is offered both on-ground and online.
