    That kind of masters doesn't prepare you for any specific career. It could be a stepping stone (but it isn't necessary) towards doing a research career, or educational psychology.

    would it be appropriate for pursuing a clinical psychology path?

    It could, but would make more sense to take a masters/D clin psych in clinical psychology.

    To qualify as a Clinical Psychologist you have to do the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych), which is pretty competitive so it is commonly suggested to have a Master's to aid in your application for it. As far as I know, no universities weight any particular Master's above others for this.

    Other routes require a specific Master's, such as Forensic, for which you must have a Master's in Forensic Psychology to become accredited.

    To add to the post above, if you achieve a first in your undergraduate degree, doing a masters may not add much extra value to an application for DClinPsy at many universities.

    If you want to go for clinical, try to get as high a mark as possible at undergrad and build up your relevant experience.
