||Faculty of Graduate Studies
|Field of Study:
||Our Clinical Psychology program is based on the 'scientist-practitioner' model and is designed to give our graduates a thorough grounding in science, research and clinical practice. Students are focused on research from the beginning of the program and work toward a PhD dissertation. Students also start applied training in their first year and continue throughout the program, ending with a full-year internship.
Due to our emphasis on the science of psychology, our program produces clinical psychologists who blend the ideals of research and service.

English is the language of study at Dalhousie; therefore all applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate their capacity to pursue a graduate-level program in English before admission. Dalhousie accepts a number of different English proficiency test scores: Internet-based TOEFL- 92; Written TOEFL - 580; MELAB - 85; IELTS - 7; CanTest - 4.5 (with no band score lower than 4.0); or CAEL 70 with no band score lower than 60. Alternatively, a prospective student may enroll in the ESL program with the Dalhousie College of Continuing Education and obtain a grade of at least A- on the final stage of that training. The language competency test may be waived if the applicant has completed a degree at a recognized university where the language of instruction is English. The claims must be verified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Test scores are valid for two years from the date the test was written. Applicants are also required to submit GRE scores.
|Additional Admission Requirements:
||Applicants are required to submit must submit at least two letters of reference, and an additional reference letter which focuses on their clinical experience and/or suitability for work in clinical psychology.
