  Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology 2005-2007 Overview of the School Differentiation Among Programs  

Differentiation among Programs

There are three different doctoral degree programs.

Students enrolled in the Psy.D. clinical psychology programconcentrate largely on theory and practice in clinical psychology. Training in research constitutes a secondary focus in the program. Students in this program generally plan careers that primarily involve service in a clinical setting.

Students enrolled in the Psy.D. organizational psychology program are primarily concerned with providing assessment, training, and intervention services for individuals, groups, and whole organizations in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors of the economy. Training in research constitutes a coequal focus.

Students enrolled in the Psy.D. school psychology program concentrate on theory and practice in school settings as their primary career focus. Training in research constitutes a secondary focus. Both the organizational and school Psy.D.programs are administratively housed in the Department of Applied Psychology.

Students enrolled in the Ph.D. clinical psychology program, administered by the Graduate School-New Brunswick, pursue a course of study that is based on a scientist-practitioner model of clinical training. Students concentrate on both theory and research in clinical psychology and clinical practice. This program draws its faculty from the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, the Department of Psychology, and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Students in this program generally plan to pursue a career in an academic or similar research-oriented setting.
