Program Details

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD-Psy) program was designed in response to the growing interest in psychology as a discipline of study and the need for advanced studies, including research beyond the master's level. This degree program emphasizes theory, research, and scholarship, culminating in a dissertation.

As the world’s population continues to age, the demand will continue for individuals trained in gerontology.
