Please Note: There is a separate APA-accredited doctoral program in clinical psychology in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences (WCAS) on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University. More information on the Weinberg College of Arts & Science (WCAS) clinical psychology program at the WCAS website. There are many differences between our program and the WCAS program. For example, the WCAS program operates from a clinical scientist model, whereas our program operates from a scientist-practitioner model (50% research and 50% clinical). You cannot apply to both programs in the same year.

See “Application Procedure” below to apply. The application deadline for admission to the 2013–2014 cohort is Friday, November 15, 2013 at midnight.
