Psychology Undergraduate Degree Programs

The M.S. in Clinical Psychology and the Ph.D. in Clinical-Community Psychology programs are designed to be responsive to the needs of a variety of mental health services settings in the state of Alaska.

Psychology Graduate Degree Programs 

Counseling is provided for families and individuals in an atmosphere sensitive to culture and ethnicity. People are seen for many reasons from a curiosity about one's own potential to concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, loss, and relationship difficulties.

Client privacy and confidentiality is observed. Students are welcomed in the UAA PSC but clients do not need to be affiliated with UAA to receive services.  Because this is a training clinic that is closed on weekends, holidays, and school breaks, the Psychological Services Center is generally not a good match for people who have severe crises.
