General Clinical Master's of Science in Psychology

The General Clinical Master's program provides a multi-theoretical view of psychological disorders that emphasizes assessment, diagnosis, and treatment from various perspectives. The program trains students in the practice of current, professionally accepted methods of psychological assessment and psychotherapy based upon various theoretical perspectives of personality and psychopathology.

The program prepares students for licensure and clinical practice at the master's level as a Limited License Psychologist (LLP) in the state of Michigan, and it trains students in the design and analysis of clinical research.

Additional information for international students can be found at:                                                                         http://www.emich.edu/graduate/prospective_students/admissions/requirements.php

All applicants to the Graduate School with non-U.S. post secondary credentials must submit an evaluation of their credentials to EMU. Educational Perspectives (EP) is the credential evaluation service that provides evaluations of international educational credentials for applicants to EMU.

  • Order the "Detailed" report (course by course evaluation) for $135.00.
  • The evaluation takes five business days from when the EP application, payment and all of the documents needed for an evaluation, are received at EP. EP will then send the evaluation to you and EMU upon completion.
  • Visit EMU's EP site: www.edperspective.org/emich for details on how to submit the evaluation request and obtain an EP application form. This evaluation will be used to determine if you are eligible for admission to EMU, if your non-U.S. institution is recognized, and your U.S.-equivalent Grade Point Average (GPA).
