​Clinical psychology is the area in psychology with a concentration in the research, diagnosis, evaluation, prevention and treatment of psychological disorders. Clinical psychologists conduct research, interviews and psychological tests to help clients resolve issues. Primarily, clinical psychologists work in health and mental health clinics, or in privately owned practices. Clinical psychology is the largest subgroup of psychology. Alabama A&M's clinical psychology program leads to the master's level practice and licensure by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC).
