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.
