Majors & Minors

Specializations (On-Campus)

Specializations are open to both Clinical and Macro majors. Specializations are currently available at the On-Campus (Charles River) Program only.

If you are interested in deepening your knowledge and expertise in a specific area of focus, you may choose to specialize in one of four areas: behavioral health; children, youth and families; trauma and violence; or aging. Students pursuing specializations will enroll in advanced electives and complete an integrative seminar and advanced field placement. Information about specialization requirements and coursework is available on the BU Bulletin.
