APA Accreditation

George Fox University, Doctor of Psychology Program
APA Accreditation

George Fox University’s Graduate Department of Clinical Psychology is accredited by the American Psychological Association.* While the PsyD degree provides training in the scientific foundations of psychology and in research methods and statistics, it places greater emphasis on the development of clinical skills.

The PsyD program received a highly favorable review by the APA during its last reaccreditation visit in 2011. A seven-year reaccreditation period was awarded, the longest interval allowed.

George Fox is the only CCCU school in the Pacific Northwest with an APA-accredited PsyD program.
