The Psy.D. program primarily is cognitive-behavioral in focus, with additional training provided in interpersonal psychotherapy and further exposure to other therapeutic approaches.

The Psy.D. program is designed as post-baccalaureate training, with 113 total credits (51 at the Master's level; 62 doctoral credits). Prerequisite requirements and the Psy.D. curriculum have been designed to assure that course and supervised training requirements are met for Pennsylvania licensure.
