The MA program in Clinical/Counseling Psychology is an exciting and dynamic program designed to prepare students for employment as masters level clinicians.   Our graduates are eligible to sit for licensure as either professional counselors, psychological associates, or both. 

As a program, we are committed to providing the highest quality clinical training in the areas of: psychological theory, assessment, and intervention.  Students can expect to become knowledgeable in a variety of theories of personality, principles of assessment, and methods of therapy.  Although our primary mission is to train masters level clinician, the research and training experiences provided by a productive and knowledgeable faculty prepare students aspiring to doctoral studies. Our graduates have gone on to study at a variety of well-respected universities (e.g., University of Oklahoma, Bowling Green State University, Texas Women's University, University of North Texas).

Two facts attest to our success:

1)    The MA in Clinical/Counseling Psychology (MPCAC) program is one of only three Texas programs nationally accredited by the Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council! 

 2)    Surveys of our former graduates indicate that all responding graduates are working within the field or are attending doctoral programs within one year of graduation!

 

The DOE legislation including 34 CFR 668.43 (a) (5) (v) and 34 CFR 668.43 (c) requires disclosures by institutions regarding educational requirements for programs leading to professional licensure or certification regardless of modality. 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) requires an institution to make readily available to enrolled and prospective students whether programs leading to professional licensure or certification meet educational requirements.
