The mission of the Clinical Psychology Program at the University of Regina it to train our students in the scientist-practitioner tradition so that they will be prepared to work as either a researcher, teacher or practitioner or all of these within a variety of settings (academic, clinical, or research setting).


In keeping with the motto of the University of Regina as “One Who Serves” the philosophy of the clinical program in the Department of Psychology is characterized by a commitment to our responsibility to society and to our responsibility to the profession. In fulfilling these responsibilities, we endeavour to ensure that our students are not only knowledgeable and competent in both delivery of services and in the conduct of creative research, but that they also endorse an ethic of care. Underlying these skills and attitude acquisitions is the principle of integrity in relationships, which, in turn, is characterized, by respect for the dignity, and welfare of others.

The Clinical Psychology program at the University of Regina aims to prepares future psychologists to work effectively with all individuals. We expect students and faculty to treat all persons with respect and fairness, and we strive to foster appreciation, awareness, and knowledge of demographic and cultural diversity. As a program, we affirm students' rights to maintain their personal beliefs, faiths and customs. For students to cultivate the competencies necessary for practice as a professional practice psychologist, we also require students to develop both the knowledge and skills to work with individuals across the full spectrum of demographic and cultural variability.

The University of Regina Clinical Program is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and we encourage applications from diverse candidates.
