Best APA-Accredited Clinical Psychology Psy.D. Programs for 2020

Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) programs prepare students for clinical careers in the field, as opposed to Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in psychology degrees, which are designed for students pursuing work in research or academia. Although both degrees grant the coveted title of “psychologist,” Psy.D. programs have different curricula, different requirements, and different practicum and internship experiences. This list introduces you to some of the best Psy.D. programs in the country, all of which are accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).

How We Chose These Clinical Psychology Psy.D. Programs

Regional or national accreditation is always important in higher education as a way to distinguish degree-granting institutions that offer high-quality education, but APA accreditation of programs is in addition to institutional accreditation and an important distinction for doctoral programs in psychology.

Recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, APA accreditation is the nationally accepted standard for quality in doctoral training and education in psychology—specifically in the fields of clinical psychology, counseling psychology, and school psychology.

Though a graduate degree from a non-APA-accredited program may not carry the same weight with employers, colleagues, governing bodies, and academic and research institutions, there are many accredited institutions that offer high-quality doctoral programs across a number of psychology specialties that will prepare students for successful careers in practice. Prospective students should consider all accredited schools to find the best fit for their needs.

The following list profiles all 15 of the clinical psychology Psy.D. programs fully accredited by the APA (published in December 2019 using the latest available information from the APA). Programs are listed in descending order of the percentage of their recent graduates who have earned professional licensure, which is needed to work as a psychologist in every state in America. The list also explores a few program highlights for each school—the unique offerings that make these Psy.D. degree programs stand out from the rest.

A Note About Instructional Models

Many of the following schools emphasize specific instructional models or psychology traditions. Below are brief explanations of each:

  • Practitioner-scientist model (also called the practitioner-scholar model): The goal of this model is to train clinicians to use scientific research as a foundation for the applied work they do, and, conversely, to use their clinical experiences to promote scientific research.
  • Psychodynamic theory: According to this tradition, humans are often driven by unconscious forces and motivations that they do not have access to. Personality is formed mainly by childhood experiences, which are often stored in the unconscious mind. The tradition is based on a collection of the theories of Sigmund Freud and his followers (such as Jung, Erikson, and Adler).
  • Cognitive-behavioral theory: This approach looks at how our thoughts influence the ways that we feel and behave. When used therapeutically, the goal is to shape a person’s thoughts to make positive behavioral changes.

In State Tuition: $47,304
Out-of-State Tuition: $47,304

Baylor’s Psy.D. program follows the practitioner-scientist model of training—an adaptation of the scientist-practitioner model. The Baylor practitioner-scientist model emphasizes the preparation of clinicians whose practice is rooted in the science of psychology and who are prepared to thoughtfully and actively contribute to the science of psychology and its application. The first part of the curriculum is dedicated to developing clinical assessment and intervention skills. From that base, students will begin supervised clinical practicum placements. Although the program’s clinical research component is secondary, it is significant for a Psy.D. program—Baylor holds a “high-research institution” Carnegie classification. All students, from the start of their training, will affiliate with a faculty member’s research program. In the fourth year, all students will complete a fully funded research practicum that takes place in their professor’s laboratory. The five-year program is highly competitive, with roughly 30 of 300 annual applicants being invited for an interview. From that pool, only six or eight are accepted, for an acceptance rate of about 2%.

Program Highlights

Baylor is not reserved in the language it uses to tout its “unparalleled” and “exceptional” financial support—and for good reason. Baylor estimates all Psy.D. students in good standing will receive $11,000 to $18,000 in practicum salary per year for the first three years, as well as full tuition remission. During the fourth year, the stipend grows to $19,000 plus full tuition remission. The program’s graduates have a consistent record of landing highly competitive clinical internships and a perfect 100% have earned licensure.

In State Tuition: $10,978
Out-of-State Tuition: $27,082

James Madison University’s Psy.D. program is the school’s oldest doctoral degree. It follows a unique blended model that the program describes as “combined-integrated training”—when you finish, you’ll emerge with a combined degree in both clinical and school psychology. The four-year program consists of three years of coursework and practica followed by a one-year pre-doctoral internship. All students are required to complete a doctoral dissertation. The program merges the disciplines of school, counseling, and clinical psychology by pairing students with supervisors from a variety of professional and academic backgrounds. Those backgrounds include cross-cultural research, parent-child interactions and attachment theory, and theoretical and philosophical psychology. The program is based on a scientific-humanistic philosophy, blending evidence-based science with moral and ethical concepts like relationships and an appreciation for diversity.

Program Highlights

A full 98% of eligible graduates earn their licenses after graduating from the program. All students accepted into the program receive assistantships and full tuition waivers, and 93% are matched with internships that are APA-CPA accredited. The program is known for its small classes and individual attention from faculty—there is one instructor for every three students.

97% of recent graduates obtained licensure

In State Tuition: $8,799
Out-of-State Tuition: $17,283

Continuously accredited by the APA since 1985, the Psy.D. program at Indiana State University follows the practitioner-scientist model of instruction. Unlike many Psy.D. programs, the curriculum places a heavy emphasis on research, much like you would expect from a traditional Ph.D. program. That’s because students are required to complete a dissertation. The result is a program that blends both rigorous clinical training as well as significant research opportunities. Of the 30 to 35 students who participate in the program every year, virtually all have bachelor’s degrees in psychology and one or two hold a master’s degree or have completed at least some graduate work. The program is led by seven clinical faculty members and five experimental faculty members.

Program Highlights

The program’s claim that it “prepares individuals to become competent professional psychologists…” is backed up by impressive data. A full 97% of graduates earn their licenses, and over the last three years, the program’s internship has achieved a 100% placement rate—all 24 students who participated between 2016 and 2019 were matched with APA-accredited experiences. Another standout feature is the program’s focus on cultural diversity and social responsibility.
