MS Clinical Psychology
The Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology Program at Emporia State University trains students to be both scientists and practitioners; approximately half of our students go on for doctoral-level training as psychologists, others practice Evidence-Based Psychology as Licensed Masters Level Psychologists. The program is largely on-campus and, for full-time students, is typically a two year program if summers are included. This is a generalist-training program that invites enough flexibility, and small enough class sizes, to pursue individual research interests or specialized training through independent study.Request More Information
