Course content

The MTSU Clinical Psychology master’s program emphasizes a broadly based scientist-practitioner approach. The course of study offers preparation to pursue doctoral training or employment involving psychological assessment, diagnostic interviewing, and/or the application of behavior analysis principles. The skills training does not provide preparation to practice psychotherapy or professional counseling at the terminal master’s level. The curriculum and practica of the program are designed to meet certification requirements for the State of Tennessee’s Certified Psychological Assistant designation. In addition to the core requirements, the Clinical program offers training in three specializations: general clinical, health/neuropsychology, and applied behavior analysis. The psychology department has a limited number of graduate assistantships available, and a limited number of faculty have money for research assistants built into their grants.
