This program is designed for students with career interests in masters-level clinical practice or those who plan to obtain a Ph.D. or Psy.D.

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Clinical Psychology program strives to develop competent healthcare providers who are critical thinkers, intelligent consumers of research, and skilled providers of psychological services in a variety of healthcare settings. Most graduates become employed as therapists, counselors, psychometricians, or other mental health-related positions.

All courses integrate science and practice, with an emphasis on ethics and the roles culture, race, and gender play in assessment and therapy. This program manages to infuse scientific rigor into a masters-level training program. While the state of Wisconsin offers dozens of masters-level counseling programs that prepare students to practice as LPCs, our degree program is the only master’s level clinical psychology program that is license eligible. Ours is a practice-based degree program in contrast to research-based Ph.D. programs: our students graduate with 600 hours of internship fieldwork, leaving the program as experienced, mature practitioners acclimated to real-world practice....

The Kean University Master of Arts in Sociology and Social Justice program prepares students to address inequality based on identity categories such as race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ability. It is the first of its kind in the state and the region.
