The first year of Bowling Green State University's doctoral Clinical Psychology program is spent on general clinical course requirements and practica. All students must complete a graduate-level research project, a postgraduate research project or research specialization exam, and a doctoral dissertation. A year-long internship is also required, typically during the fifth and final year of the program.
The program provides three concentrations, which includes Clinical Child Psychology, Clinical Community Psychology, and Health Psychology. It also offers a specialization in Psychology of Religion and Spirituality. Once they choose a concentration in their later years, students can engage in concentration-specific electives, practica, and research experiences.
