Learning and Career Outcomes
What Can You Do with a PhD in Clinical Psychology?
Each degree has goals and related student learning outcomes that are reflected in the program curriculum, offerings, and requirements. All programs include student development of competencies in the area of research and scholarship.
Specific plans for meeting both program goals and individual goals are developed at the beginning of the program at the Residential Orientation and in subsequent work with faculty mentors. These are reviewed and revised periodically throughout both the MA and PhD programs in the Graduate Colloquium.
The program goals and student learning outcomes for the psychology PhD degree programs enable students to:
- Work to engage others in efforts to promote life enhancing change.
- Combine critical, empathetic, and creative thinking with self-reflection to develop self-knowledge, self-realization, and expansion of consciousness.
- Bring innovation and creativity in their use of methods, moving beyond disciplinary and paradigmatic boundaries.
- Place their work within a whole person perspective including multiple contexts, and acknowledge their own biases and unchallenged assumptions.
- Understand, critically analyze, and create psychological research.
