Bachelor of Science

The Clinical/Counseling Concentration helps Pitt-Greensburg students stand out among candidates applying for jobs or for graduate school.

For students interested in entering the job market immediately after obtaining their Bachelor’s degree, this specialization is actionable for conducting various types of psychological interventions and assessments appropriate for an undergraduate diploma (e.g., Therapist Support Specialist, Case Manager, Crisis Worker, Behavior Analyst, Counselor, Social Worker). The Clinical/Counseling concentration is also beneficial for students interested in attending graduate school in an applied area, such as clinical psychology, marriage and family therapy, drugs and alcohol counseling, or social work.

The concentration is embedded within the psychology major, requiring no extra classes than the general psychology major. The difference from the general psychology major is that certain psychology core courses and electives within the major are specified for the clinical concentration.

Please contact Dr. Russ Phillips if you are interested in the Clinical/Counseling Concentration.
