Need for Professional Training

The Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) is committed to meeting the national need for well-educated and well-trained professional psychologists. The programs are designed to provide doctoral training for persons who wish to attain excellence as scholarly professional psychologists and to meet the service needs of the community in a wide variety of settings. Special emphasis is given to practice and development of new alternatives to meet the needs of underserved populations. GSAPP is very interested in recruiting a diverse student body and has succeeded in admitting and graduating one of the highest proportions of minority students among all doctoral psychology programs in the United States. Twenty-five percent of our graduates represent a host of racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, including African-American, Latino, Asian, Native American, and international students. Training focuses on intervention strategies for individuals, dyads, families, groups, organizations, and community programs.
