Clinical Psychology - Our Curriculum

This 60 semester-unit graduate level program centers around a required core of academic coursework that meets the educational requirements for the California State Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) license and the California Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC).  (As of July 1, 1999, the California State Board of Behavioral Sciences changed the title of the license from Marriage, Family, and Child Counselor, or MFCC, to Marriage and Family Therapist. In 2010, California became the 50th state to license professional clinical counselors.)

At this time, we only have a full-time program that is typically completed in 2 years.  Students enter as a cohort in the Fall and take the following classes:
