Juris Doctor and Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology

In conjunction with the College of Law, the Department of Psychology offers an interdisciplinary program in law and Clinical Psychology. Students who are interested in the joint program seek admission to each individual program and consult with academic advisors in each program to plan their degree program.

The curriculum consists of 78 credit hours of law courses, including all required subjects as established by the College of Law and 39 credit hours of specific program requirements in the Graduate Clinical Psychology program as established by the Clinical Psychology Department. The student must consult with the J.D./M.A. in Clinical Psychology Joint Degree Committee in selecting elective courses and must agree to take all courses recommended by the Committee. This program eliminates 16 hours of course work which would be required if the programs in law and clinical psychology were taken separately.
