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 clinical interviewing and psychological assessment. 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 and health/neuropsychology. 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.


What We're Doing

Myra Pennington

Alum credits Clinical Psychology program for preparedness as a psychometrist

As a lifelong Tennessean, Myra Pennington is now a Psychometrist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. As a student in MTSU’s Clinical Psychology program, Pennington said she gained “valuable knowledge” about psychology across multiple fields. “My specialization in the program was the neuropsychology track, where I acquired important insights into how the brain plays significant roles in everything we do. I have been told by staff whom I work with at Vanderbilt that due to my training and education in MTSU’s Clinical Psychology program, I was the most qualified applicant for the position. I am honored to say that I have been very efficient in my role, and; I owe that to the preparedness the program provided me.” Pennington said the relationships she made during the program are irreplaceable. “The relationships built with my cohort members and with the professors in the program mean so much to me. I now have a wonderful network of connections within the field. The faculty in the program are all kind, down-to-earth people who love their students.”

Analyst works with crime data, trends for TBI

Caitlin Orman began working as a statistical analyst for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation soon after earning her master’s in Clinical Psychology in August 2013. She helps coordinate the production of several annual crime publications and provides technical assistance to contributing agencies in the collection and analysis of crime incident data and crime trends. “The Clinical master’s program at MTSU provided me with the research, writing, and critical thinking skills needed to perform my job,” Orman says. “The program also cultivated my passion for crime research, which I was able to explore through my master’s thesis that focused on unwanted sexual experiences and self-blame in women.” Orman served a clinical psychology practicum at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, assisted with research as a graduate assistant, and also taught as an adjunct instructor in fall 2013.

Graduate

Department of Psychology programs lead to two graduate degrees:

A minor in Psychology at the graduate level is also available to other students.

Clinical Psychology master's candidates choose from three areas of elective specialization:

  • General Clinical, designed to allow students to sample a broad range of electives including additional coursework in assessment.
  • Health Psychology/Neuropsychology, enhancing knowledge and skills in the areas of biologically/neurologically-based assessment and physical health/psychological health links.

Admission to graduate study in Clinical Psychology is competitive and not automatic for students meeting minimal admission requirements.

For unconditional admission, applicants must have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or higher and a minimum score of 291 (current scale)/ 900 (former scale) on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) combined Verbal and Quantitative sections.

Most applicants have completed 15 semester hours of psychology classes, but those admitted without the prerequisite undergraduate courses must complete those credits in addition to their graduate program.

Professional liability insurance ($1,000,000 each incident/$3,000,000 annual aggregate) must be maintained throughout enrollment in the program with a current insurance binder filed with the department at all times.

Undergraduate

Three undergraduate majors lead to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Psychology, Pre-Graduate Psychology, and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. The department also offers an online psychology degree in conjunction with the University College.

Undergraduates can earn a minor in one of five psychology fields: Psychology, Life Span Development, Mental Health Services, Industrial/Organizational, and Neuroscience. The department participates in an interdisciplinary minor in Behavioral Research.

Professional Licensure Disclosure

MTSU discloses that Master of Arts (M.A.) in Psychology, Clinical Concentration, meets the educational requirements for licensure as a Certified Psychological Assistant by the Tennessee Department of Health. Admission to a program does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or certificate.Additionally, licensing authorities for each state set and enforce their own requirements and standards and those requirements and standards are subject to change. Students should be aware that state licensure boards may have additional and recurring requirements such as an application, supervision, examinations, continuing education, fees, fingerprinting, background check, etc.

Prospective and current students in MTSU’s M.A. Psychology-Clinical program who are located outside the state of Tennessee or who plan to practice as a Psychological Assistant/Associate/Technician outside Tennessee should consult this table for state-by-state disclosures and licensing board information and must discuss their plans with an advisor. Additionally, if you take even a casual interest in practicing outside of Tennessee upon graduation, we strongly encourage you to review the licensure and certification requirements for your states of interest.

Please see undergraduate catalog for information regarding undergraduate programs.

Admission Requirements

Admission to graduate study in Clinical Psychology is competitive and not automatic for students meeting minimal admission requirements. Students are selected from a pool of qualified applicants. Each year the number of students admitted to the program depends on the availability of adequate faculty supervision.

In order to be considered for admission, candidates must meet two standards: an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or higher and a minimum score on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). A minimum of 291 on the combined Verbal and Quantitative sections is expected for the Clinical Psychology concentration within the Master of Arts in Psychology.

Applications for Summer/Fall admission must be complete by March 1 and applications for Spring admission must be complete by October 1. Late applicants who meet the admission criteria may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applicants to the Clinical Psychology program should see below for a supplemental application and reference forms.

Applicants must demonstrate knowledge of the core areas of psychology by completing the following courses at either the undergraduate or graduate level prior to entering the Clinical Program or during enrollment in the program (relevant courses offered at MTSU are listed in parentheses):

  1. group measurement/testing (PSY 4260/PSY 5260 or PSY 6050);
  2. abnormal psychology (PSY 3230/PSY 5230);
  3. learning or cognition (PSY 4040,  PSY 4480, PSY 5480*, or PSY 6190*);
  4. social or developmental (PSY 2210, PSY 2300, PSY 4190, PSY 4210/PSY 5210, PSY 4610/ PSY 5610PSY 6120*, PSY 6130*, PSY 6410);
  5. brain and behavior, sensation and perception, or research methods (PSY 3070, PSY 4780/PSY 5780, PSY 4240/PSY 5240, or PSY 4030/PSY 5030);
  6. basic statistics (PSY 3020).

Courses marked with an asterisk (*) may be counted as approved graduate electives depending upon specialization.

Most applicants have completed 15 semester hours of psychology classes prior to admission to their graduate programs. Those applicants without 15 semester hours of undergraduate psychology may be admitted to the programs but must complete those credits in addition to their graduate programs.

Previous students seeking readmission to the Clinical Psychology program should contact the graduate program director and refer to the program handbook for readmission policy. All potential students must apply to the clinical program and will be evaluated on the current criteria as delineated in the graduate catalog (i.e., GRE, GPA, transcript, three supplemental reference forms, current resume or curriculum vita, and the supplemental clinical application).

If a student already has an M.A. degree from either the Clinical or School Psychology programs at MTSU and wants to return to take specific courses to prepare for either the psychological assistant or the behavior analysis specialization, they may be considered in the applicant pool. If admitted, however, no new degree would be obtained; the student would be a non-degree-seeking student but would be admitted to take specific clinical courses.

If a student has a master's degree or graduate coursework from another MTSU program or from another university, they may also be considered in the applicant pool. If accepted, credit for previous coursework would be allocated on an individual basis, consistent with the following MTSU policies:

  1. If no previous graduate degree was obtained, up to 12 graduate credit hours may be applied to the Clinical master's degree.
  2. If a previous master's degree was obtained, no credit that applied to that degree can be applied to the Clinical master's degree at MTSU. Additional coursework would be necessary to meet the 43-46 hour program requirement.

Program Notes

Students must be admitted to the clinical program prior to enrolling in most required clinical core courses. Non-degree-seeking students may not enroll in required clinical courses, except by special permission.

Professional liability insurance ($1,000,000 each incident/$3,000,000 annual aggregate) must be maintained throughout enrollment in the program with a current insurance binder filed with the department at all times.

Students must be able to meet the demands required for professional work in psychology. Therefore, students may be subject to dismissal from the Psychology Department if they (a) commit a serious breach of ethics or gross professional negligence or (b) present evidence of impaired psychological functioning that would present a danger to themselves or others in a professional role. Students who are dismissed may reapply and will be considered for readmission on a competitive basis. Students who reapply may be asked to provide evidence of improved ability to meet performance requirements.

If changes to the program are needed (such as course substitutions), students should file a Revision Form available on the Graduate Studies website at www.mtsu.edu/graduate/forms.php.

Our adjunct faculty bring outstanding professional experience to our programs. Many are industry leaders with decorated careers and honors. Importantly, they are innovative educators who offer hands-on learning to our students to prepare them to enter and thrive in a dynamic, and oftentimes emerging, industry and professional world. They inspire, instruct, and challenge our students toward academic and professional success.

Training Model

The clinical program operates on the scientist-practitioner model of training. The coursework emphasizes empirically-based clinical methods. To further emphasize the "scientist" component of training, all students are required to take six semester hours of graduate statistics and research methods. Additionally, students can elect to complete an empirical thesis as a part of their training. Some recent students have presented their thesis work at national professional conferences including the American Psychological Association, the Association for Advancement of Behavior Therapy, the Society of Pediatric Psychology, and the Society for Research in Child Development. For additional research experience, students may take an elective in Independent Research. The "practitioner" component of the program is emphasized through course content, skills-based coursework (e.g., cognitive assessment, personality assessment), and the clinical practica. Meetings on professional issues (e.g., applying for licensure or certifications) conducted by the practicum coordinator also is part of the required practicum course. Finally, the curriculum and practica are designed to meet certification requirements for the State of Tennessee's Certified Psychological Assistant (CPA), the current master's level psychology certification. Because of frequent change in the Tennessee licensure and certification laws, however, we cannot guarantee that our program will fully meet the requirements when you apply for certification.
