The Master of Science in Clinical Psychology

Program Faculty

Our faculty do not simply lecture—they involve you. In the classroom, you will be guided through a learning environment that builds as much on your own experience and understanding as on theirs. Most importantly, they couple exemplary credentials with up-to-date knowledge, keeping them at the cutting edge of their professions and their disciplines. All faculty are members of the North American Association of Master's in Psychology (NAMP).
