Master's of Science in Psychology

The Master’s of Science in Psychology fulfills the educational requirements for California's Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) license. The program's mission is to provide the state with highly competent master-level clinicians trained to counsel individuals, couples, families, and groups in a multicultural society. Graduates find employment with County Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Services, Social Services, schools, employee assistance programs, hospitals, community mental health centers, and private practice. Some graduates also secure teaching positions at Community Colleges and Universities. Students complete a 90-quarter unit professional degree program designed to prepare students for licensure as Marriage and Family Therapists. Graduates are also prepared for doctoral training in clinical or counseling psychology. The cornerstone of this graduate program is the Counseling Practicum. After students complete core coursework, they develop their clinical skills and identity as a counselor working in Cal Poly’s Community Counseling Clinic. Students apply their knowledge of psychological assessment, psychiatric diagnosis, and counseling theory and practice by working with individuals, groups, couples, and families in SLO County.
