We offer students the needed support and guidance to complete the PsyD Degree in five years – minimizing cost and accelerating entry into the professional workforce.
Our innovative five-year program begins with a unique practicum preparation clinic featuring standardized patients (actors), allowing students to build a repertoire of basic clinical skills under the direct supervision of clinical faculty. This model provides our students with a head start on developing interview, assessment, and diagnostic skills prior to beginning their practicum and internship experiences in years two through five.
Our curriculum is specifically designed to provide students with the discipline-specific knowledge and profession-wide competencies outlined by the American Psychological Association (APA). Course series include Human Diversity, Foundations of Behavior, Assessment, Interventions, Psychometrics, and Research Design, Internship Preparation, and Dissertation Preparation.
