Due to changes in licensure requirements in the State of Connecticut, the University of Hartford is no longer accepting applications to the Master of Arts in Clinical Practices in Psychology.



The mission of the Clinical Practices Masters Program is to develop clinical psychologists who are competent in all aspects of psychotherapy, psychological assessment, and clinical research.
