PsyD Five-Year Curriculum

Student progress through the PsyD in Clinical Psychology degree program is intended to be sequential. Certain courses are offered which are designed to provide a theoretical and practical foundation for courses that will follow in subsequent years. In addition, certain advanced courses require the student to have the background of more basic courses in order to benefit fully from the course experience. Students must satisfy all stated prerequisites for a course before a registration for that course can be considered official.

Students are generally encouraged to follow a five-year completion plan in their doctoral studies. This program must be completed in seven years.
