The Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology (Ph.D.)

The Clinical Program in the Department of Psychology is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation by the American Psychological Association and has trained students for almost 45 years. In fall 1994, the department admitted its first class of students pursuing doctoral degrees. In spring 2000, the program was accredited by the American Psychological Association. (You may wish to read Why Accreditation Matters by Deborah Smith Bailey, regarding the importance of accreditation.) The program submitted it’s self-study in Fall, 2010, and was site-visited in Spring, 2011. On the basis of this review, the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association voted to award accreditation to this program. In doing so, the Commission scheduled the next accreditation site visit to be held in 2018.

The Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology offers courses and training leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology. All doctoral students acquire a Master's of Science (M.S.) degree as they progress toward the doctoral degree.
