The School of Professional Psychology has 12 full-time faculty members who represent a broad range of interests and theoretical orientations. Faculty members are active in research, professional organizations, and the scholarship of teaching and many maintain clinical practices. Additionally, many members of our faculty have organized Research Interest Groups (RIGS) to work with teams of graduate students to explore research and clinical interests. The Psy.D. degree is a 120 credit hour program completed over 5 - 6 years. Although strongly grounded in the study of general clinical psychology, students choose additional advanced course work in one of four areas of specialized emphasis: Adult Psychology, Child/Adolescent/Family Psychology, Forensic Psychology, and Health Psychology.
