Program Description:

Our two fully APA accredited clinical psychology programs offer a combination of traditional and innovative training opportunities. The clinical psychology programs are: (1) the PhD program which follows the traditional scientist-practitioner model, and (2) the PsyD program which is more oriented toward clinical practice. The underlying philosophy of doctoral training in clinical psychology at LLU emphasizes that its students/graduates will be, first of all, psychologists who are well-grounded in the theory and science of psychology, then going on to become and function as clinical psychologists in a variety of settings. The comprehensive mission of the clinical psychology programs is to provide its students with the cumulative experiences necessary for them to become • scientifically oriented • thoroughly ethical, intensively trained, and highly skilled psychologists • well prepared as professionals (academicians, researchers, consultants, supervisors, or clinicians) in the discipline of psychology in the twenty-first century, particularly in the health-related fields and within the context of a holistic approach to human health and welfare.


The Department of Psychology is committed to the highest levels of excellence in all aspects relevant to graduate education in psychology and meets all APA standards of accreditation for graduate programs. An important goal of our psychology programs are to prepare psychologists for the professional world of the 21st century which may include working in clinical, research, teaching, and/or leadership positions in such settings as mental health units, general hospitals, pediatric and geriatric facilities, managed care settings, and corporate institutions as well as university settings.
