For accelerated students who have been admitted to Elmhurst, here's everything you need to know about getting enrolled and registering for class.
The field of clinical psychology offers a wealth of rewarding career opportunities. In settings ranging from private practice to clinics to hospitals, clinical psychologists explore human behavior and help people to live happier, more productive lives.
As an adult student at Elmhurst College, you can earn a bachelor's degree in pre-clinical psychology on the fast track. You can complete all the required courses for the major in just 12 months of evening classes--or you may complete the program on a part-time basis over two (or more) years. To earn the bachelor’s degree, you’ll also need to complete certain requirements in the Elmhurst College Integrated Curriculum, a series of courses that provide a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences.
To accommodate the schedules of busy adults, many courses are offered in a hybrid format, combining traditional on-campus instruction with online sessions.
Throughout the curriculum, you'll study how people learn, think, perceive, behave and interact with others. And you'll prepare for graduate study and a rewarding career in clinical and counseling psychology.
