If one of the required subdisciplines of applied clinical psychology was included in a student’s master’s program, the program will permit the student to select a substitute course that would provide the student with exposure to an area to which the student was not exposed in her or his master’s program. Students, with program permission, may substitute a 500-level psychology course, such as those listed below, for a required course she or he had previously taken in a master’s program.

Graduate courses carry numbers from 500 to 599. Advanced undergraduate courses numbered between 400 and 499 may be used to meet some graduate degree requirements when taken by graduate students. Courses below the 400 level may not. A graduate student may register for or audit these courses in order to make up deficiencies or to fill in gaps in previous education but not to meet requirements for an advanced degree.
