Appalachian Establishes PsyD Program in Clinical Psychology

Appalachian State University has received approval from the University of North Carolina Board of Governors to establish a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) program, 

The Psy.D. program will be housed in the Dr. Wiley F. Smith Department of Psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences with a primary goal of training students in clinical psychology to serve rural populations. The program will help address the shortage of providers in North Carolina, where about one-quarter of the state’s 100 counties have no practicing psychologist.

Appalachian plans to begin admitting students in fall 2019. 

The annoucement is featured in Appalachian Today and in the Watauga Democrat.
