The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley College of Liberal Arts has been awarded a $6 million grant from the Valley Baptist Legacy Foundation, it was announced Thursday
The grant over the next five years will help develop a Ph.D program in clinical psychology.
The clinical psychology program, once it receives approval from the UT System and appropriate accreditation agencies, will recruit highly qualified graduate students with diverse cultural backgrounds, and will educate those students to become research-oriented clinical psychologists with acquired clinical knowledge and skills specific to Hispanic populations.
Upon earning this degree, students will be qualified as clinical practitioners, working directly with mental health consumers. They also will be qualified to teach the next generation of clinical psychologists and participate in cutting-edge research.
