Master of Clinical Psychology




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
The Master of Clinical Psychology builds upon the latest psychotherapy process and outcome research findings and uses an integrative approach to training students in assessment and treatment of mental health problems and disorders. This approach assists students to develop a flexible and client-focused approach to practice, consistent with contemporary standards for evidence-based practice in clinical psychology.
Students learn to conceptualise and treat clinical presentations using relational psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, systemic, and narrative therapeutic approaches. Graduates of this course have the knowledge and competence to provide assessment and treatment across the lifespan.
Career outcomes
This course provides the academic foundation for a career in clinical psychology. Clinical psychologists are employed in a wide range of health and counselling services and are also able to work as independent (private) practitioners. Clinical psychology may also provide a springboard for other careers, subject to additional or complementary training.
On endorsement, graduates may apply for specialist positions as clinical psychologists and enjoy increased scope of practice and more flexible arrangements under Medicare, when working in private practice settings.
