School Psychology PhD Course Sequence (years 4-6)

The PhD course sequence includes 5 years of coursework and one year of internship. See the first three years of coursework here.

The following tables show the course sequences for doctoral students in years 4-6. The tables begin in year 4, after the EdS degree is completed. Based on their interests, students in the program choose between two clinical pathway options for their advanced practicum experiences: Clinical/Mental health focus or Neurodevelopmental focus. Students consult with their advisor to decide on the appropriate pathway. To allow for sufficient time for faculty to acquire practicum placements, doctoral students declare their advanced practicum pathway before the end of Spring quarter during the 3rd year.
