The Chestnut Hill College Psy.D. program has been fully accredited by APA since 2004.

The program emphasizes the development of culturally competent clinical skills, buttressed by psychological knowledge, and refined through intensive practice in the classroom and during supervised field placements. The program’s theoretical orientation is a complementary blend of psychodynamic and systems theory. The program also features optional concentrations in psychological assessment and couple, family, and child psychology.
