  • Licensure

    *The percent licensed is computed using surveys completed by recent graduates of MSU's Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program. The percent of licensed graduates is in line with the program goals and objectives. Some of our graduates have obtained academic or policy-making positions where licensure is not necessary to perform their duties. Graduates from our program who wish to become licensed to practice psychotherapy, perform clinical assessments, or become consultants, have been able in all cases to do so.
