Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology

You are here

Immaculata's Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology, accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA), is grounded in the practitioner-scholar model of professional psychology. The Psy.D. program is committed to the education and training objectives for doctoral programs set forth by the APA and has been influenced by the values of the National Council of Schools and Programs in Professional Psychology (NCSPP).

As a Psy.D. student, you will be instructed intensively in psychotherapy, psychodiagnostics, and in other areas pertinent to the practice of clinical psychology. The Psy.D. program, approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Higher Education in 1991, fosters the development of your research skills through coursework, independent projects under faculty direction, and dissertation. After you graduate from the program, you will be prepared to practice at the doctoral level, make scholarly contributions to the professional community, and take leadership positions in the mental health field.

All course scheduling is done with advisement. As an evening program, the Psy.D. curriculum was developed to address the educational needs and objectives of students who are working, and whose lifestyles do not permit attendance at daytime classes.

Please see the Psy.D. Handbook, the Practicum Handbook, the Internship Handbook, and the Dissertation Handbook, which outline additional aspects of the doctoral program, including goals, competencies, comprehensive examination, practicums, and internships.

For more information, contact Jed Yalof, Psy.D., department chair and program coordinator at 610-647-4400 ext. 3503 or jyalof@immaculata.edu, or fill out the graduate program information request form.
