Description, Scope, and Purpose of the Program

The West Chester University Psy.D. program in clinical psychology follows a practitioner-scholar model that prepares students for leadership roles as culturally competent psychologists. Graduates of WCU's program will be able to:

  • Employ evidence-based interventions to assess, treat, and prevent mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders particularly among individuals who are at greatest risk and demonstrate the greatest need.
  • Prepare students to be critical consumers of research, and to develop and evaluate interventions for the purpose of quality improvement and clinical decision-making.
  • Provide accurate and precise expertise in assessment and therapeutic interventions through the didactic coursework and supervised clinical training experiences beginning in the first year of the program.

Graduates of WCU's program will be adaptive to new knowledge in the field and responsive to emerging needs in an increasingly diverse society. Read more about the curriculum.
