NASHUA – Rivier University’s combined doctoral program in counseling and school psychology (Psy.D.) has been approved for membership in the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers as a Doctoral Program Associate.

In April, Rivier announced the official launch of the program – becoming the first college or university in the state of New Hampshire to offer a combined doctoral program and joining only eight other similar programs in the country.

The APPIC organization provides a service to members who are interested in the training of doctoral and postdoctoral psychologists, as well as working with the National Match Program that places psychology doctoral students in internships.

Rivier’s Psy.D. program in counseling and school psychology provides individuals who already hold a master’s degree or certificate of advanced graduate study in counseling or school psychology with an opportunity to obtain advanced training in their respective fields. The curriculum meets the New Hampshire state licensure requirements under New Hampshire law and is consistent with the APA Accreditation Guidelines and Principles of the American Psychological Association.

Psy.D. is the second doctoral program to be offered by the University. In 2008, Rivier introduced the doctorate of education in leadership and learning – also the first in the state of New Hampshire.
