As a student in the Psychology program at Saybrook, you can tailor your goals and courses to meet your individual needs and interests. You may select courses from multiple areas for a broad base of knowledge, or select a specific group of professionally meaningful courses to address a particular concern. You can then add certificates  or specializations to focus your studies in greater depth.
Graduates of Saybrook’s psychology program are frequently successful as college faculty and authors, but our programs prepare you for more than academia. Many of our faculty members are noteworthy social activists who pass on their professional experience and passion to their students.
Our 79-credit Psychology PhD program provides you with the opportunity to build upon the foundation provided by an MA degree. It can be helpful if you want to enhance your clinical psychology skills and already have licensure, if you seek work in the public sector, or if you wish to pursue a career in research and teaching.
