Clinical Psychology Masters Program in Japan

Japan: Master of Arts (MA) in Clinical Psychology

Our innovative clinical psychology MA program was the first program of its kind to be offered in Tokyo. The three year program is taught entirely in the Japanese language and is designed to develop culturally competent practitioners who will work in Japan.

The program curriculum integrates US models of psychological theory and practice with modifications that are culturally appropriate for populations in Japan. Students benefit from the expertise of both US and Japanese faculty. The program includes field placement experiences throughout Japan with concurrent supervision and intervention courses as well as a master’s project that is clinically based.

The format of the program includes face-to-face classroom courses, online courses and eight day-long intensive seminar courses. The face-to-face classroom courses are based in Tokyo and take place on weekends, once per month. Students also attend a week-long intensive summer course in the US.
