Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology

Rosemead School of Psychology


Rosemead’s Doctor of Psychology in clinical psychology program equips psychologists with the knowledge, training and enhanced professional skills to care for people’s psychological needs in a variety of settings. By integrating the science of psychology with Christian theology, the program prepares graduates who understand and practice psychology as a God-ordained calling. As a practitioner’s degree, the Psy.D. is designed for those who primarily seek to go into full-time practice — and thus emphasizes the ability to understand and apply research, rather than conduct original research. The program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) since 1980.
