The Leadership Psychology doctoral program began in the Fall of 2012. We will graduate our first cohort this Spring of 2016. I am proud to be leading this program as well as teaching and designing courses for it since it's inception. The content delivered over the the entire program is a tightly woven mix of competencies. These competencies combined allow our graduates to become leaders of positive change, effective interventionists at the individual, team and systems level, and effective leaders.
The applied focus ensures that we are not teaching theory for theory sake. A comment I hear frequently from our students working in the field is, "I learned this last night and was able to apply it today at work." This is the point - to teach what matters and is relevant so that our graduates go away with not only a full tool kit but mental models and ways of thinking and being that allow them to apply their tools to a diverse set of organizational circumstances. Last, know that by joining our Leadership Psychology PsyD program you are joining a vibrant global community of leaders and organizational change practitioners. We actively maintain relationships with our alumni who have formed the Alumni Alliance in 2010.
