Plan of Study


The MPS-Clinical Psychological Science is a 30-credit graduate program designed to be completed in fifteen months of full-time enrollment. The program features seminar-style, face-to-face instruction and classes meet in the evening at the UMD College Park campus. Instruction is provided by university faculty and experts in the field. 

See the sample plan of study, below. Students should use this as a guide to develop a plan with the program director. The program uses the term academic calendar with classes held each 12-week term:  I (fall), II (winter), III (spring), IV (summer). Full-time students enroll in two 3-credit courses (6 credits) over the course of five 12-week terms.

Specific class meeting information (days and time) is posted on UMD’s interactive web service services, Testudo. Once on that site, select “Schedule of Classes,” then the term/year. Courses are listed by academic unit. 

Sample Plan of Study

The program uses specific section codes for registration which are listed on the sample plan of study. Actual course offerings are determined by the program and may vary. Students should note if a course has a pre-requisite or co-requisite. UMD graduate students in other programs who are interested in registering for courses in this program, see Non-Program Student Registration. For a detailed course description, see Courses
