Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.)

The doctor of psychology (Psy.D.) degree in professional psychology is offered with specializations in the areas of clinical psychology and school psychology. The programs are offered by two departments: clinical psychology and applied psychology. The programs have separate but overlapping curricula, with some shared courses and others geared to the needs of the specialty. Most courses are open to both Psy.D. and clinical Ph.D. students.

Graduates of both programs are potentially eligible for licensing as psychologists in New Jersey. The Board of Psychological Examiners sets license eligibility rules and regulations. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the licensing regulations of the state(s) in which they plan to practice.
