The Clinical Program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association continuously since 1951. Being accredited means that our Program possesses a coherent model of professional training, including a clearly identifiable core faculty, clear lines of leadership and accountability, adequate space and resources, a constant influx of students, and a coherent, current, and graduated curriculum.
In addition to successfully completing the core and distribution course requirements, students may choose to add specialty courses in neuropsychology, child clinical psychology, quantitative methods, and/or behavioral health, each of which may culminate in completion of a concentration or certificate.
To receive the Ph.D. in clinical psychology, students must successfully defend their dissertation, and demonstrate clinical competence in training experiences in our training clinic and in off-site clinical placements, as well as a full-year internship.
