The PhD in clinical psychology at UMass Amherst is an APA-accredited research-based degree program that will prepare you for careers in clinical science and practice.

Through the program, you’ll receive training in how to participate in an empirically supported clinical practice through hands-on psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessments with clients with diverse backgrounds and from across the life span.

Our program operates the Psychological Services Center, which provides evidence-based mental health services to the university and surrounding communities and engages in psychotherapy and neuropsychological research.
