Our PsyD in Clinical Psychology program is offered in a traditional, though flexible format with classes meeting in the mornings, afternoons and some evenings. The program can be completed in as little as four years, however most students complete the program in five or six years. This program must be completed in seven years.
The program prepares students to become licensed clinical psychologists (provided they pass the appropriate licensure examinations).
