The Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology (MA) is an intensive program designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to become limited licensed psychologists. The curriculum challenges students to integrate core knowledge of psychology with emerging clinical skills and attitudes. The program bridges traditional and applied programs by emphasizing psychological theories and concepts, personal experience, clinical training, and research.
The instructional format is interactive and combines a variety of teaching methods. Professional development and personal growth are integral to the degree programs at MiSPP, and many aspects of the educational process are based on experiential learning and self-exploration. Students participate in courses, group process, and other related activities that require self-exploration, dialogue, and expression of personal information. In addition, courses, clinical supervision or other program-related activities may require classroom presentations and/or written assignments that involve the communication of personal information.
Enrolment and duration
Students have the option of enrolling in day and/or evening classes. Enrolment as a full-time student allows program completion in 11 months, otherwise, depending on the specific combination of day and/or evening classes, program lengths can vary.
Full-time and part-time enrollment in the MA program at MiSPP begins in the fall semester only. The ABA concentration can also be combined with the MA program.
