Thoughts from Current Students

"The UNT Clinical Psychology program goes above and beyond its excellent reputation. The faculty, staff and students create an atmosphere that can only be described as a "home away from home" and I am so lucky to have the opportunity to work aside these wonderful individuals. Not to mention, the clinical and research experiences here offer such a strong foundation for a future career in the field!" - Skyler

"It's great to be a part of a program where you feel supported by your fellow students! The program has a very congenial atmosphere." - Andrew

"I went to UNT during my undergraduate career and fell in love with Denton's college town. The Clinical Psychology doctoral program here really stood out to me with how they truly implement their scientist-practitioner model into the curriculum and clinical supervision. In addition to implementing a solid clinical and research foundational training, the program's peer support and supervision model provides a great sense of community and support that I had been looking for in a graduate program." - Hanan

"I appreciate being a part of a program that values me as an individual and junior colleague. I was drawn to the program by its mission and efforts toward diversity and inclusion, which are not only central to my identity but also a focal point of my clinical and research interests. More importantly, I am allowed to be my authentic self while undergoing professional development in a way that feels safe and collaborative. As such, I realize that my unique experience in this program is associated with great privilege (e.g., safety, support). I strongly encourage students with an interest in developing solid clinical, research as well as pedagogical skills to consider this program." - Princess

"So many factors compelled me to apply to UNT - the Tier 1 Research status, the state-of-the-art on-site clinic, the rigorous assessment training, and breadth of therapeutic orientations. But I truly feel that the greatest asset of the program is the people. I have forged some of my closest friendships with my peers. I also appreciate the tiered supervision model, which allows me to learn from more advanced students. There are so many opportunities to collaborate with faculty and students across programs. Overall, the training is incredible, but it's the powerful sense of community that sets UNT apart from other psychology graduate programs." - Alana
"In addition to the excellent research, clinical, and assessment training provided by the clinical psychology program, I have found myself most impressed by the warm, welcoming, and supportive environment here at UNT. Anytime I need help I can ask any of the faculty or my fellow clinical students knowing they will not only answer my question but provide me with resources to help solve the problem in the future. I have no doubt that this genuinely friendly and supportive environment allows me to get the most out of my training, and leave here well prepared for my future career." - Patrick
