Preclinical Psychology Post-Baccalaureate Certificate
Offered in: Chicago | Roosevelt Online
The Preclinical Psychology Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program is for students who have already completed their undergraduate education but did not take the necessary sequence of classes that graduate programs in clinical psychology and other mental health fields require for admission. This 7-course (21 credit hour) accelerated program allows students to fulfill these prerequisites in a streamlined fashion. Many graduate programs in clinical and counseling psychology are competitive for admission, so demonstrating completion of a rigorous sequence is often necessary for advanced training and ultimately entrance into the field. This program will also provide students with support and assistance in applying to graduate school (personalized advising, assistance with application essays).
All classes for the certificate are offered online, either in an 8- or 16-week format. All requirements can be completed as rapidly as within one year (Fall, Spring, with the option of Summer).
The certificate requires 21 credit hours in Psychology. We will accept up to 9 semester hours of transfer for courses completed at other colleges towards the certificate. A grade of C is the minimal acceptable grade for a course to be applied towards the certificate.
