There are two graduate training programs in clinical psychology at Northwestern. This site contains detailed information on the program run by the Department of Psychology, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, located on the Evanston campus, which is primarily focused on research. The clinical program on the Chicago campus is affiliated with the Feinberg School of Medicine, and is focused on scientist/practitioner training.

When submitting applications, you need to CLEARLY specify the program to which you are applying. Your application will be forwarded to the wrong department unless you have the correct department number on your Graduate School application.



Note that the Department of Psychology will not require GRE test scores for applications submitted by December 1, 2023 for admission in Fall 2024
