The following curriculum applies to all students who matriculated in Fall 2020 or thereafter. For students who matriculated prior to Fall 2019, refer to the appropriate Midwestern University Catalog for the relevant curriculum listing.

Total Quarter Credits in the 5-year Professional Program:  231.5-275.5 Students electing the Child and Adolescent Emphasis may require an additional 15 credits. Students entering the program with advanced standing or otherwise electing the four-year option may complete the program in 4 years with a minimum of 212 credits. In this case the 4th year is eliminated and PSYCD 1811 - 1814 and PSYCD 1822 - 1825 are moved into the 3rd year. 

The total number of quarter credits is dependent upon which, if any, elective courses are taken by the student.

With the Program Director's approval, students needing additional time during or beyond the internship year to complete the Dissertation must register for PSYCD 1921-1924 Dissertation Continuation I-IV or PSYCD 1990-1999 Dissertation Post-Internship I - X as needed, a 0.5 credit hour course, to complete the dissertation requirement.

Note: The Clinical Psychology Program reserves the right to alter its curriculum however and whenever it deems appropriate.
