The department of Clinical Psychology was created in 1998 as a response to the big problem of trauma encountered by the people of Rwanda and others from the great lake region and east African countries, which have experienced various psychosocial problems including wars, massacres and genocide. For that purpose, the department organizes undergraduate (day and evening program) and postgraduate program.
