Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program
Students interested in careers in academic settings may wish to obtain formal training and experience in the teaching of psychology courses. First year graduate students often assist a faculty instructor. Second year students are frequently employed as teaching assistants for the introductory psychology course, which involves teaching a small section of the class. During their first semester of teaching, graduate students receive formal training in the teaching of psychology via a weekly seminar. Opportunities also exist for advanced clinical students to assist in graduate courses (e.g., objective or projective assessment, advanced clinical practicum, introductory or multivariate statistics) and to teach a section of a more advanced undergraduate course (e.g., abnormal psychology, abnormal child psychology, adolescent psychology, developmental psychology, elementary statistics, physiological psychology, introduction to professional psychology).
