Differentiation among Programs

There are two doctoral degree (Psy.D.) programs: clinical psychology and school psychology.

Students enrolled in the Psy.D. in 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. in school psychology program concentrate on provision of psychological services in educational settings as their primary career focus. Training in research is provided to support understanding of excellence in professional practice.

In addition, a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) program in clinical psychology is administered by the School of Graduate Studies. See more information about this program in the Academic Programs section of this catalog.
