Spalding University was founded in 1814 to provide quality education, and our vibrant university mission continues to be built around creating a diverse community of learners committed to meeting the needs of our time through the promotion of peace and justice.  We offer a BA in Psychology and a PsyD in clinical psychology (which has been fully accredited by APA since 1989).  Our doctoral program is a scholar-practitioner model that offers outstanding generalist training with opportunities to also gain focused training in Forensic Psychology, Health Psychology, Neuropsychology (child/adolescent and adult), or Advanced Clinical Psychology. A strength of our university is its location in downtown Louisville, which allows our students a wide variety of practicum experiences working with traditionally marginalized and underserved individuals. As a program, we are strongly committed to attracting and supporting students and faculty with marginalized identities who also tend to be underrepresented in the field of psychology.
