Community/Clinical Psychology

What is Community/Clinical Psychology?

Community/Clinical Psychology is an ideal field for students who wish to pursue graduate studies and future licensure as counselors or psychologists. In addition to treating mental and behavioral health issues, licensed counselors and psychologists work on teams to develop or administer prevention or wellness programs. Admission to graduate programs is selective. At Walsh, we take extra steps to prepare students for graduate studies.


What makes Walsh's Community/Clinical Psychology major unique?

  • Behavior-Focused. Psychoanalytical, behavioral and humanistic perspectives receive detailed attention, but several courses are taught from an integrative bio-psychological perspective.
  • Examination of Personal and Social Issues. Through courses about gender, addictions, culture, human sexuality and child and adolescent development, students will gain an appreciation and understanding of multiple psychological issues.
  • Experienced Faculty. Our professors hold the doctorate degree and are competent practitioners and researchers.

Generally speaking, what courses will I need to take for a Community/Clinical Psychology Degree?

  • Abnormal Psychology
  • Counseling and Interviewing Processes
  • Addictions
  • Human Development Across the Lifespan
