Graduate School of Professional Psychology

Change the system, change the services.

Among 400 APA-accredited doctoral programs nationwide, DU’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology is one of the top 3 schools in the country and remains a global leader in mental and behavioral health research, education and service.

Our comprehensive programs — including Clinical Psychology, Sport and Performance Psychology, Forensic Psychology and International Disaster Psychology– demonstrate our dedication to serving vulnerable populations and training for transformative care.  

As demand for psychologists grows significantly, our programs fill a critical gap: over one third of PsyD practitioners in our local region are DU graduates, and our work to improve underlying systems of care for the whole person within a social system is revolutionizing mental and behavioral health care in and well beyond the Rocky Mountain region.
