Program Overview:

The B.A. program in Psychology is committed to providing students with a broad understanding and appreciation of the field of psychology as a multifaceted discipline with both scientific and humanistic aspects. In addition to the mastery of specific course content, the program seeks to develop the student's ability to think critically about issues in the field. Moreover, the program is designed to help students: (1) integrate their knowledge of psychology with concepts and research from related disciplines, and (2) discover opportunities for application of knowledge in psychology to the solution of human problems.

We also have a B.A. satellite campus at Mercer Community College in West Windsor and offer on site courses there.

The Master of Arts (M.A.) program in Clinical and Counseling Psychology prepares students for the professional practice of counseling, assessment and/or mental health research. The curriculum provides a solid grounding in both theories and interventions that can be applied to a wide variety of mental health, academic and research settings. We emphasize clinical skills, ethical responsibility, cultural competency, self-awareness, and current body of knowledge in the scientific, methodological and theoretical foundations of practice. Our program expects students to become compassionate and caring scientist-practitioners with motivation to continue learning and furthering their development throughout their professional careers. This program prepares our students for careers as Master's level mental health clinicians, researchers, or to work in various human services settings. In addition, the program will offer a unique foundation for candidates pursuing doctoral-level studies.

William Paterson University's Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in clinical psychology is a full-time, five-year, practitioner-scholar training program accredited by the American Psychological Association.
