Immaculata's Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology is grounded in the practitioner-scholar model of professional psychology. Our graduates are prepared to practice at the doctoral level, make scholarly contributions to the professional community, and take leadership positions in mental health.
Classes, which are held in the evening, cover psychotherapy, psychodiagnostics, intervention, diversity, professional ethics, scientific foundations, and other areas pertinent to the practice of clinical psychology. You will develop your research skills through coursework, independent projects under faculty direction, and your dissertation.
The program provides a strong knowledge base, practicum and internship training, and research opportunities, all of which complement each other. Equipped with this combination of theory, methodology and practice, Immaculata's Psy.D. graduates serve as mental health clinicians in a variety of organizations dedicated to the educational, social and psychological development of the person.
