Counseling/Clinical Psychology

Beyond core requirements, students complete the major requirements by choosing a concentration. Based on a student’s primary interests, the choice of a concentration enables the student to begin to prepare for post-baccalaureate work in psychology. Concentrations should be declared in the spring semester of the sophomore year.

The counseling/clinical psychology concentration is directed toward students who have an interest in developing a background in foundational counseling theories, skills, and methods. This concentration prepares students for advanced study leading to positions in clinical or counseling psychology, social agencies, or church-based counseling ministries.
