Adult Track | Clinical Psychology PsyD

The Adult Track within the School of Graduate Psychology combines academic and clinical training experiences designed to prepare students for work with adult populations ranging from college students through gerontology clients. The track provides students with a way to cluster their training through defined curriculum, programs of research, and clinical practica that solidify core knowledge in the diagnosis, treatment, and assessment of adults.

It is our goal to train outstanding practitioner-scholars who can deliver and/or develop cutting-edge empirically-driven and validated treatments for this unique population.
