Why Choose Clinical Psychology?

The School of Professional Psychology (SOPP) was granted approval by the Ohio Board of Regents in 2009 to award the Master of Clinical Psychology (Psy.M.) degree to its students. Students are admitted to the Doctor of Clinical Psychology degree program which serves as the terminal degree for SOPP students. Students do not apply for admission separately for the Psy.M. degree as it is not a terminal degree program. Rather, it is completed as students matriculate through the Psy.D. program.

Application for the Psy.M. Degree

Students will typically complete requirements for the Psy.M. degree at the end of their second year in the program. The Psy.M. degree will be awarded to SOPP students who apply for the degree if they have successfully met the requirements.

The Office of the Program Chair will manage the Psy.M. degree application process. Students complete an application at the start of the Summer Semester of their second year. They turn this into the Office of the Program Chair. Once certified, the Psy.M. degree will be conferred to students at the end of the summer of their second year.

A diploma will be issued to students who have completed all degree requirements and apply for the Master of Clinical Psychology degree. Students are invited to attend commencement along with other Wright State University graduates.
