In today’s challenging educational environment, organizations need highly effective professionals equipped to make a positive impact on student outcomes.
Our goal at PCOM is to provide advanced training for school psychologists, educators, social workers and other individuals who have completed a master’s degree and are seeking additional skills and expanded career opportunities.
As a student in the Doctor of Philosophy program (PhD) in Educational Psychology at PCOM, you will:
The PhD program is designed to be completed in three years of full-time study, although students may choose to pursue a degree on a part-time basis. Because the program is geared toward working professionals, the majority of classes are offered in the late afternoon and early evening.
There is no formal practicum or internship associated with this program and graduates are not eligible to sit for licensure as psychologists.
Since most colleges and universities require professors and instructors to have a doctoral degree, graduates of our PhD program may choose to pursue careers teaching in a higher education setting.
Graduates will be better prepared to assume leadership roles within educational systems such as serving on school boards, higher education commissions and departments of education.
