The Psychology major's concentration in Counseling/Clinical Psychology combines the related areas of counseling psychology and clinical psychology. Counseling psychology applies psychology to common problems in living, such as in choosing a career or resolving issues in a personal relationship. Clinical psychology applies psychology not only to common problems in living but also to psychological disorders, such as a phobia or a clinical depression. Basic and applied specialties in psychology are numerous and extraordinarily diverse. Not all students majoring in psychology pursue one of the two applied concentrations.
