PhD in Psychology: Clinical Psychology

The Ph.D. Program in Clinical Psychology program is a scientist-practioner-oriented program that is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). It encompasses five years of full-time study and provides graduate students with a strong foundation in relevant psychological theory, experience in the practice of psychological assessment and intervention, experience in conducting meaningful clinical research, and opportunities to develop teaching competencies.  See the Clinical Psychology Program's website for more information.

Requirements for Admission

All students are admitted with the expectation that they intend to complete the PhD degree. However, before advancing to doctoral-level studies, students must earn the MS, including completion of a master’s thesis. Admitted students who hold a bachelor’s degree are expected to complete both the master’s degree and post-master’s portions of the Drexel curriculum. Applicants who already hold a master’s from another university may be admitted with post-master’s status if their graduate-level preparation is deemed equivalent to the master’s portion of the Drexel curriculum.

Requirements for Students Enrolling with a Bachelor’s Degree
For those entering with a bachelor’s degree, the PhD program requires approximately five years to complete. The first two years of training correspond to the master’s-level studies: focusing on clinical areas such as entry-level assessment and intervention skills, psychopathology, and specialized study in cognitive-behavior therapy, neuropsychology, health psychology, and/or forensic psychology. These two years also include a major focus on research skills, involving statistics, research design, and supervised research experience with the mentor. Entry-level assessment, intervention, and teaching skills are also developed.

By the end of the first two years of study, students should have completed 45.0 credits of coursework, maintained a GPA of at least 3.5, developed and defended a thesis, passed comprehensive examinations and completed 800 hours of practicum experience in the form of a clinical practicum. Students demonstrating satisfactory performance in these areas will be admitted to post-master’s status.

Requirements for Students Who Already Hold a Master’s Degree
Students entering with a master’s degree from another university complete the PhD requirements in 4-5 years. The master’s degree should have included an experimental thesis. Students lacking this prerequisite will still be considered for admission, but such students will be required to complete a research project equivalent to the Drexel master’s thesis. In addition, students must demonstrate a GPA of at least 3.5 in master’s-level courses in order to be accepted for post-master’s status.

Curriculum

The program in Clinical Psychology curriculum follows the scientist-practitioner model and APA guidelines on accreditation of doctoral clinical psychology programs. It also considers state licensing guidelines and various publications that have been written on the topic of doctoral education, training, and credentialing in clinical psychology, as well as the specialty areas of cognitive-behavior therapy, forensic psychology, health psychology, and neuropsychology.

The following section outlines the courses required for graduation for entering Bachelor's-level students. The PhD program curriculum requires the student to earn a minimum of 90.0 credits. Typically, students enroll in 27.0 credits during the first year, 22.0 credits during the second and third years, 12.0 credits in the fourth year, and 8.0 credits during the fifth/final internship year. Drexel University operates on a calendar of four eleven-week terms. Students in the program do not take courses during summer term in order to complete research projects and continue clinical practicum training.

All coursework can be divided into two major components: (1) foundations of psychology, which is the evolving body of knowledge in the discipline of psychology, and (2) clinical and professional training, which focuses on the application of theory and empirical research to the practice of psychology. Listed below are all required and elective courses offered within the Drexel psychology curriculum followed by specific requirements for each concentration.

Concentrations

Clinical Neuropsychology Concentration
The clinical neuropsychology concentration includes courses, research, and clinical experiences designed to train the students for professional practice in neuropsychology. Clinical neuropsychology involves the application of psychological assessment and intervention to the problems encountered by people with brain injury or illness. The knowledge of brain-behavior functioning and the incorporation of neuropsychological conceptualizations with traditional clinical conceptualizations of functioning are aimed at providing the student with a wider perspective regarding the range of human functioning and disability. The student is able to pursue specific interests in geriatrics, pediatrics, traumatic brain injury, and rehabilitation.

In addition to the core curriculum:

  • One neuropsychology practicum (800 hours)
  • A neuropsychology-focused thesis and dissertation
  • Required classes: Principles of Neuropsychology, Principles of Neuroscience, Neuropsychological Assessment, Case Analysis and Integration
  • At least two neuropsychology electives: Models of Memory, Rehabilitation
  • Psychology, Advanced Neuropsychology Assessment and Intervention:
  • Children and Adolescents, Advanced Neuropsychology Assessment and
  • Intervention: The Elderly.

Forensic Psychology Concentration
Forensic psychology involves the application of assessment and intervention techniques to informing legal decision-makers and attorneys on questions in criminal, civil, and family law. Those who concentrate in forensic psychology will be trained in relevant law, behavioral science research, and assessment and intervention approaches with a particular focus on juvenile and criminal issues.

In addition to the core curriculum:

  • One forensic psychology practicum (800 hours)
  • A forensic psychology-focused thesis and dissertation
  • At least two years of research in an area related to forensic psychology
  • Required classes: Forensic Assessment I and II, Law and Mental Health
  • At least two forensic psychology electives.

Clinical Health Psychology Concentration
Health psychology adopts a broad-based, biopsychosocial perspective in order to: (1) better understand the interplay among behavioral, emotional, cognitive, social, and biological factors regarding health, wellness, and physical disease; (2) promote and maintain wellness and positive physical health; (3) prevent, treat, and rehabilitate illness and disability, and (4) improve the health care delivery system. The health psychology concentration aims to provide specialty training in order to prepare graduate students for academic and/or clinical positions where the primary focus is on physical health problems.

CBT Concentration
Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) represents a broad family of psychological interventions that are grounded in scientific theories and principles derived from psychology and related disciplines, and that stress the empirical validation of intervention methods. Various theories, principles, models, and techniques fall under the general rubric of CBT, and these approaches have been applied to the full range of human experience, from the assessment and treatment of severe psychopathology and profound developmental delays to primary prevention efforts to enhancing peak performance among athletes.

Common features of the various CBT approaches include a focus primarily on the present rather than the past, an emphasis on parsimony in theoretical explanations, grounding in learning principles (including principles related to how we interpret the world and/or how we related to our own experience), and the emphasis on epistemological empiricism. The CBT concentration aims to provide pre-specialty training in order to prepare graduate students for academic and/or clinical positions in which CBT is a primary focus.

Additional concentration requirements beyond the core curriculum include:

  • One CBT-oriented practicum (800 hours)
  • A CBT-focused thesis and/or dissertation
  • Required classes: PSY 820 Cognitive Behavior Therapy, PSY 840 Advanced Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Behavioral Stress Management (taken in second year with Personality Assessment taken in third year)
