Program Description:

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology prepares students to conduct research, to serve on college and university faculties, and to provide a range of clinical services. The program adheres to the Clinical Scientist model of education and training, which is founded on the idea that the practice of psychology should be based on the science of psychology, and that practicing psychologists should be able to translate clinical observation into researchable questions and pursue new knowledge on the basis of their observations. Students are expected to develop an area of special expertise in research, and opportunities for specialized clinical training are offered. In addition to general training in clinical psychology, students may receive specialized research and clinical training in one of the following areas: Adult Psychopathology; Assessment; Child; Health; or Neuropsychology.
