No. The Ph.D. program does not require any clinical or practice courses and there are no required practica where students work with clients. Students may, however, find themselves collecting data from clients as part of a research practicum, research class, independent study, or for a dissertation. The Ph.D. program has been carefully crafted to provide a balance of teaching, research opportunities, and instruction so that our graduates can step into university assistant professor positions and have a solid competence and confidence that comes from knowing how to conduct research and be an effective educator.
