Dissertation

Clinical Psychology Program

A Dissertation is required for graduation. This is intended as a scholarly work that permits the student an opportunity to enhance their knowledge about a particular clinical area. A committee of faculty members will assist with this process. Students are required to develop and defend a proposal for their project that must be approved by the Dissertation Committee before the project is implemented. The student then completes data collection and analysis required for the project and completes the dissertation document. Each student must present an oral defense of the project upon its completion. Following the defense, the student must provide the program with copies of the Dissertation that are suitable for binding. With the Program Director's approval, students needing additional time to complete the Dissertation following completion of their internship must register for PSYCG 1820 Dissertation Continuation, a 1 credit course.
