Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

We welcome talented students from every cultural background and our university is exceptionally inclusive in terms of every kind of diversity. The program is designed as a 5-year curriculum, with 2 years designated for MA requirements and 3 years for PhD requirements. Additional requirements for tracks in Clinical-Forensic, Clinical-Child and Clinical-Neuropsychology take another 1 to 2 years. Program graduates enter both academic and professional practice career streams, and are exceptionally successful on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), with pass rates of 100% between 2007 and 2012 (ASPPB, 2012).
