Welcome to the website for the School of Psychology. This website was designed to provide detailed information about our programs, faculty, students and affiliations with other organizations all in an attractive and user-friendly environment.

The School of Psychology is one of the premier academic units at Fairleigh Dickinson University and is nationally recognized. It boasts a fully APA-accredited Ph.D. Program in Clinical Psychology, a Psy.D. Program in School Psychology. It also offers two post-graduate programs that are offered to professionals on a distance basis, the Postdoctoral M.S. Program in Clinical Psychopharmacology. In addition, the School offers several other graduate programs: an M.A. Program in General/Theoretical Psychology, an M.A. in Forensic Psychology, an BA/MA Accelerated Program in Forensic Psychology, an M.A. (plus certification) Program in School Psychology and a new Post-baccalaureate Re-specialization Track in Psychology that was designed to assist those who are seeking career changes and wish to transition into graduate level training in psychology. The School also offers a strong undergraduate program (B.A.) in Psychology with specializations (tracks) in Forensic Psychology, Mental Health, Clinical Social Work, Consumer Psychology and Organizational Behavior/Human Resources. More information on each of these programs and tracks can be obtained by selecting the appropriate link from the main page of this website.

The School of Psychology has a large number of full- and part-time faculty who are excellent teachers, scholars and practitioners. Many of the School's faculty are actively involved in the practice of their professions and their affiliations with outside organizations provide opportunities for students to gain valuable practical experience. More information about the School's full-time faculty and their research and practice interests is available on this website.

The School also operates the University's Center for Psychological Services, which is an outpatient facility providing mental health services to the local and surrounding communities. Given that the Center for Psychological Services is a training facility, it affords students opportunities for obtaining significant practical experience. Information about the Center and its specialty programs can be obtained via a link on this website.
