Why earn your MS in Clinical Psychology at Walden?

“I had to make sure the college I chose was accredited and user-friendly with a challenging curriculum."

Ginger Jenkins | MS in Forensic Psychology Graduate, PhD in Psychology Student

The MS in Clinical Psychology general degree is not designed to prepare students to become a licensed psychology or counseling professional.

The MS in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Counseling and California Counseling specialization (for California residents only) are designed to prepare graduates for professional counseling practice at the master’s level. Graduates completing the Counseling specialization may qualify to sit for licensing exams and meet the academic licensure requirements of some state counselor licensing boards. However, the Walden University MS in Clinical Psychology program is not accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body, which is a requirement for licensure as a counselor in many states. Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues, state-by-state educational requirements, and internship and practicum requirements; however, it remains the student’s responsibility to evaluate and understand the licensure requirements for the state or international location in which the student intends to work as requirements vary widely. Walden University makes no representation or guarantee that the completion of a degree or coursework for graduate credit will permit the learner to obtain licensure.
