Students wishing to pursue the Master’s Degree Program in Clinical Psychology will have to take the courses related to research (4) as well as those selected as program electives (4 to be chosen of 6), in addition to the courses corresponding to their specialty of choice (6).
Students have an option to pursue a specialty, taking only those courses that correspond to their specialty of choice.
The courses in question involve theory and practice and they include a revision of the theoretical components dealt with in the specialty, as well as the management and supervision of clinical cases.
The aim of the Master’s Degree Program in Clinical Psychology focuses on training clinical professionals who are committed to improving the quality of their interventions, based on a solid understanding and use of research methodology with a capacity to discriminate, systematize, and organize available scientific information. That is to say, they are capable of making informed decisions on the best treatment to offer within the scope of Psychology based on Empirical Evidence, assessing the risks and benefits of its application in different cultural contexts and clinical scenarios.
The above will allow graduates to develop clinical and research professional competencies to devise clinical guides as well as to plan, lead, apply, and assess actions oriented to clinical interventions on individuals, families, groups, and communities from the approach of their choice in four specialties: cognitive-behavioral clinical practice, systemic clinical practice, psychoanalytic clinical practice, and gerontological clinical practice.
