At its heart, psychology is the study of human behavior. Psychologists examine mental process and behavior—including cognition, emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Suffolk University’s psychology curriculum encourages you to examine the brain, the person, and the cultural context of individual development.
You will study with professors who are actively engaged in the field as either researchers and/or clinicians. Our faculty members are experts in a variety of areas, such as emotion, body image, bullying, anxiety disorders, and forensic psychology. You’ll have plentiful opportunities to conduct research with them in one of our 10 research labs.
Receive the systematic, cumulative training you need to become an ethically and culturally aware clinical psychologist in an academic, research, clinical, or community setting. The department’s highly regarded PhD APA-accredited program in Clinical Psychology combines a scientist-practitioner orientation with focused training in various clinical specialty areas.
If you already have a doctoral degree in psychology and seek doctoral-level training clinical psychology, this program is ideal for you. Along with clinically-relevant coursework and practica, you will complete an APA-accredited or AAPI-participating clinical internship.
