Program of Study for the Doctor of Psychology with en route Master of Arts in Psychology
Admission Requirements: Baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university; complete application to the Graduate School; official general GRE exam; completion of approved courses (or demonstrated competence in the subject matter) in General Psychology, Research Methods (including statistics) and Abnormal Psychology; statement not exceeding two pages describing the applicant’s academic and professional goals, as well as identifying a potential mentor. In addition, priority will be given to students committed to providing clinical services to rural or underserved populations upon graduation.
To be considered for admission, applicants must meet the criteria for admission to the Graduate School. Meeting these criteria does not guarantee admission.
Top applicants will be invited for a formal, in-person interview. If invited, attendance at an onsite interview is strongly encouraged for priority consideration. Successful admission will be contingent upon completion of a criminal background check that will be reviewed by the Clinical Admissions Committee and the Graduate School. Applicants who are recommended for admission will be contacted with instructions.
Admitted PsyD applicants will earn an MA degree (see Psychology - Clinical Psychology Concentration, MA) en route to the PsyD. The 60-hour MA is not, however, offered as a stand-alone degree. The 113 hours for the PsyD are distributed as follows: Psychology Core (30 credit hours), Clinical/Professional Core (65 credit hours), electives (6 credit hours), dissertation (9 credit hours), and Internship (3 credit hours).
