Leadership Psychology PsyD Admissions Requirements

Applying to the Program

The program requires that the student already possess a 30-credit equivalent masters degree (this is included into calculating the total 98 credits for this degree). We suggest a demonstrated academic accomplishment at the graduate level of at least a 3.0 GPA. We also require the completion of our online application, along with the submission of three letters of recommendation. We also require at least two interviews per applicant. If the applicant is local to the New England area these interviews must be in-person with program staff on an established interview date. The GRE is optional, but not required.

Additionally qualified applicants to the doctoral program in Leadership Psychology are those whose prior graduate-level training encompasses one or more of the following foundations for the study of organizational leadership:

  • A background for understanding a particular organizational context for leadership (e.g., political science, organizational development and behavior or management, or education wherein the applicant learned about organizations/institutions and how those organizations/institutions contribute to or are served by society)
  • A background for understanding a perspective on human behavior that can be applied to the study of organizational leadership (e.g., literature, philosophy, psychology, sociology)
  • A background for understanding the methodological skills of organizational leadership research (e.g., statistics, social sciences) with an emphasis in methodology.
