The Masters Degree was established as a way to formalize the research experience which students receive in the Clinical-Community Psychology, Ph.D.  program, as well as to allow them to receive a degree mid-way in the program to enhance their viability for hiring in community assistantships and for acceptance at internship settings. The Masters Degree does not increase the course requirements which students will have to take to achieve their Ph.D. but rather specifies which courses required for the Ph.D. would apply toward a Masters Degree and formalizes the prior second year research project into a Masters thesis. Students will be required to defend the Masters thesis and jointly take an oral comprehensive examination on their coursework to date at the time of the defense. All students who enter the program without a Masters Degree must complete the requirements for a Masters.

Degree Requirements (47 Hours)
