Doctor of Psychology Program
In our Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology program, our central goal is to prepare you to become a competent, valuable contributor to the field of professional psychology. Our program’s strengths include our commitment to student learning and mentoring, our diversity among faculty and students, and our focus on clinical practice.
Throughout the program, classroom experiences are intended to provide you with a strong knowledge base of theory and research but, more importantly, teach you how to translate this knowledge into professional practice. Your practicum and internship experiences then give you an opportunity to apply these concepts while working with clinical patients.
Clinical training involves supervised out-of-class contact with a clinical population. Through this experience, you’ll have the opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge, implement clinical techniques based on this knowledge, and develop the professional and personal attitudes important to the identity of a professional psychologist. By the end of clinical training, you should possess effective assessment and intervention skills and practice in a highly ethical manner.
During clinical training, you’ll advance through progressively more challenging levels of training. At each level, your progress is assessed in multiple ways by several faculty members and field supervisors. Most students in the PsyD in Clinical Psychology degree program generally complete their practicum in the second and third years of the program and their pre-doctoral internship in the fifth year of the program.
We offer programs online and at campuses all over the country, so wherever you live, we’re sure to have something for you.
