Graduate Programs

The Master of Science in Clinical Psychology is designed to be responsive to the needs of a variety of Alaska mental health service settings and to meet prerequisites for licensing requirements at the master’s level in Psychology for the State of Alaska. The MS allows graduates to pursue either the licensed professional counselor (LPC) or the licensed psychological associate (LPA) license.

The goal of the program is to provide students with a well-rounded education that includes an evidence-based background in the best practices applicable to community mental health settings. The curriculum addresses local behavioral health needs in a context that is culturally sensitive and community focused. An important program goal is the recruitment and retention of nontraditional students.
