Psy.D. with a concentration in Clinical Psychology

Please note: Effective Fall 2014, the Psy.D. program with a concentration in clinical psychology will no longer be admitting students into the program. Questions about the Psy.D. program can be directed to the dean, Dr. William Lax.


Union Institute & University’s Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) program offers a concentration in clinical psychology, following a practitioner-scholar model. The program’s distributed learning model makes it accessible to working adults who need to balance career, family, and other responsibilities.

Cohort Model

Students meet together in small cohorts for coursework over weekends and at academic meetings in Cincinnati and Brattleboro. Students in the Doctor of Psychology program benefit from Union Institute & University’s experienced psychology faculty and collaborative learning environment—developing the attitudes, knowledge, and skills they need to advance their careers.

Social Justice and Diversity Within the Doctor of Psychology Program

Union Institute & University emphasizes social justice and diversity in all of its programs. Students in the Doctor of Psychology program are trained not only to assess and treat mental health problems, but also to understand and treat problems within their sociopolitical context. These include issues related to poverty, violence, substance abuse, racism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression.
