Clinical Psychology in Health and Welfare

Master's Program

We offer unique teaching and research programs to develop highly skilled professionals who are expected to take leading roles in the healthcare, welfare, forensic, work, and educational fields. Those programs utilise the placements within our group such as IUHW Mita Hospital and Atami Hospital, as well as the welfare facilities including Shinjuku Keyakien. The Clinical Psychology course also offers practical training at a range of placements, including the department of psychiatry at the affiliate hospitals, the welfare and educational facilities, and the IUHW Graduate School's Akasaka Counseling Room. Through the practical training, we aim to develop clinical psychologists and certified psychologists (to be confirmed) with advanced expertise, an academic excellence, multi-disciplinary knowledge, and a rich humanity, who will be capable of contributing to the professional frontline.

We accept applicants from the wide range of backgrounds, including professionals in health and welfare fields, those who completed psychology-related degrees or other general university degrees, and mature students who have work experiences. Applicants must be willing to become clinical psychologists who are able to work internationally and collaboratively with people in a variety of fields, such as health, medicine, and welfare. The Clinical Psychology course is located at Tokyo Akasaka Campus, which is close to Akasakamitsuke Station.
