Unlike the PhD, CalSouthern’s PsyD is an applied, clinically focused degree that emphasizes the practical knowledge and skills required to be an effective therapist or counselor. CalSouthern’s PsyD also meets the educational requirements for licensure in the state of California as a clinical psychologist, and numerous CalSouthern graduates have been successful in obtaining licensure via the program.
