Graduate Level Training 

Psychologists receive their graduate training by completing either a master’s degree and then a doctoral degree, or by entering the doctoral program after completing their undergraduate education. A Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in psychology involves training in conducting and utilizing research as well as teaching and clinical practice, while a Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) has a focus on clinical work. Graduate coursework, clinical training, comprehensive examinations, and writing a dissertation typically involve at least a 6-year commitment, as well as then completing a year-long internship before receiving one’s degree. When choosing a graduate program, consider whether the program is APA-accredited as well as whether the program meets the requirements for licensure in the state where you intend to practice.
