You Can Study At Clinical Psychology Graduate School

Clinical psychology graduate school doctorate programs can offer students from all over the world a chance to prepare themselves for a career in psychology practice. Psychology remains one of the most popular study subjects, and is offered by many universities throughout the USA and Canada. If you have the appropriate bachelor's degree and good credentials, there is no reason why you should not be able to find a suitable place somewhere within the university system.

It is important to understand the role that graduate school education plays in North America, because some of the terminology which is used differs from one country to another. In the American university system, there is no 'postgraduate' study, or at least nothing which is known by that name, as there is in other English speaking countries. A graduate school is the part of a university which trains people who have already achieved a bachelor's degree in a similar and related subject, and places for this high level of study are always hotly contested. Different universities have their own minimum requirements for entry, and departments within each university can impose even stricter requirements.

If you are in any way undecided as to whether or not to pursue clinical psychology to degree level, you may want to bear in mind that this is one of those subjects where the length of the course has increased to a level far beyond that which was originally intended. Graduate school programs were always supposed to last for three or four years, but now they can often last for much longer. In some cases, they can even last for double the amount of time which they were designed to take. Psychology is a subject, and a career, which is strictly for those who are dedicated, and who are prepared to put in the study time needed.

Of the first and most obvious reference points when you are looking at clinical psychology graduate school programs is the rankings which are published every year. These rankings cover a ten year rolling period, and so are representative of the performance of each university which offers a certain course. The ranking tables will allow you to identify which colleges you would consider applying to, and to make an initial comparison. You can then carry out some more detailed research once you have your short list drawn up.

It is always important to have as many potential options as possible, as there is no guarantee that your first choice of university will accept you. You can greatly increase your chances by finding out how your chosen university chooses which applications to accept, and tailoring your own submission to these requirements. Few universities now use the crude method of purely judging people on past test results, as that is no accurate reflection of a student's ability to produce a thesis or to submit high quality course work.

Find out exactly what your chosen clinical psychology graduate school demands from potential students, and satisfy these demands to the best of your ability. In most cases, you will need to submit a written statement as to why you want to study psychology in the first place, and then exactly what your eventual career plans are. These written submissions will be carefully analyzed by the tutors running the psychology courses, before they make a final choice as to who to admit. If you do nothing else, make sure these submissions are of the highest possible quality, as they can make or break your attempt to get in to clinical psychology graduate school.
