Psy.D.- Doctor of Psychology
Radford University will offer a Doctor of Phsychology (Psy.D.) in Counseling Psychology with a focus on rural mental health. The Psy. D. degree in Counseling Psychology is designed for persons interested in careers as psychologists in mental health settings and institutions where clinical supervision and the direct application of counseling, therapy and psychological assessment are required. The program follows the practitioner-scholar model with an emphasis on the clinical training and the application of research to practice. The recommended course sequence includes three years of post-masters coursework, practica and dissertation, plus an additional 1,800-2,000 hour internship approved by the program faculty.
This program is accepting its first class of students for the fall of 2008 and is still in its formative stages. We continue to hire faculty and to add to the curriculum. The program is not yet accredited by the American Psychological Association; however, we expect to apply as soon as possible, which will be during the 2011-2012 academic year (when the first students go on internship).
