Clinical Psychology at EIU
The Master's of Arts in Clinical Psychology is designed for students with career interests in master’s-level clinical practice or those who plan to obtain a Ph.D. or Psy.D. The foundation of the Clinical Psychology program is the scientist-practitioner model with training rooted in theoretical knowledge and ethical practice. The clinical training component provides students with instruction in empirically-based psychotherapies, assessment, and diagnosis, culminating in a practicum and a two-semester internship. The research focus of the program is designed to develop students’ critical thinking and quantitative skills, and includes coursework in research design and analysis, and a required thesis. The Clinical Psychology program is approved by and affiliated with the Council of Applied Master's Programs in Psychology (CAMPP).
