Masters degrees in Clinical Psychology involve advanced study of the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with psychological disorders.
Related subjects include Applied Clinical Psychology and Clinical Neuropsychology. Entry requirements usually include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Medicine, Nursing or Psychology.
Courses in this field equip you with the tools to assess and treat patients of all ages who are experiencing psychological distress or behavioural issues. Programmes typically include a professional placement, during which you’ll learn how to make a psychological assessment.
You’ll also explore the different kinds of treatment that are available, and may choose to specialise in a particular area of psychotherapy. These techniques include psychodynamic psychology that attempts to reveal the unconscious content of a client’s psyche; humanistic psychology, which encourages self-actualisation; cognitive behavioural therapy; and family systems therapy.
As well as clinical practice, your career may include research, teaching, consultation, forensic testimony and programme development.
