Clinical Psychology Program

The PhD program in clinical psychology is offered as one of six major areas of doctoral study within the Department of Psychology at ASU Tempe. Our clinical program is:

  • based upon a clinical science model of training;
  •  fully accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS);
  •  a member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science;
  • a PhD (doctoral) program only;
  •  designed so that students who were admitted with a bachelor’s degree can finish the requirements in six years including a one-year, full-time internship;
  •  organized to allow students to begin practicum training in the program’s second year;
  • best able to serve the educational needs of students with deep interests in empirical research; and
  • highly competitive — in the last several years we have admitted between 3 and 10 new students per year from a pool of 200 to 300 applicants.
