Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD)

The William Paterson University doctoral program (PsyD) in clinical psychology is a practitioner-scholar oriented program that provides a direct route for students who hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology to pursue advanced studies and obtain a master’s in clinical and counseling psychology and a doctorate in clinical psychology. 

When you enroll in the PsyD program, you will study in a small community of peers and mentors. You will have the opportunity to get training in empirically based treatments and interventions taught by outstanding faculty with diverse interests in both clinical practice and research. The program offers individualized attention and state-of-the-art facilities in our new Science Complex, which has clinical, teaching, and research facilities, in addition to a new psychology clinical training suite that features recording and monitoring capabilities. We also have a dedicated graduate student study suite for work and study and for developing a sense of community.
