Clinical Psychology Department
With a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology degree, you have the opportunity to work intimately with people at the core of personal challenges, to create and direct human service centers, and to train, to supervise, to teach and to treat individuals, families, groups and systems.
Our program will prepare you to be a practicing clinician through coordinated ongoing academic and applied experience. Throughout the five-year program, coursework is coordinated with field placement experiences, providing a strong academic and experiential base for understanding and treating human problems.
At William James College, we actively encourage the development of the "professional self" through integration at all levels- in the classroom, at field placements sites, and through self-observation and awareness. These are the essential elements necessary to cultivate and nurture thoughtful, sensitive, culturally competent and effective professional psychologists.
