Expertise and leadership don’t always go together. If you’re an experienced professional with a master’s degree who wants to become a more confident, influential leader in your field—and help others unlock their potential—the Doctor of Psychology in Leadership Psychology from William James College could be the right program for you.
This innovative PsyD program offers expertise in the neurology, theory and practices of effective leadership that you can apply to your current role or to career opportunities in consulting, training, education and more. It features a flexible hybrid format that accommodates full-time work schedules, so you can advance your skillset without hitting pause on your career.
The PsyD in Leadership Psychology combines online courses with periodic residencies. Coursework covers 68 credits of classes and field experience.
Residencies last four days each and take place in the fall, spring and summer of each year. You can complete this program in as few as four years full-time or six years part-time.
To fulfill graduation requirements, you will complete a doctoral project that shows how you have synthesized concepts from the program and applied them to an area of professional interest.
You have the option to complete an emphasis and school-wide concentration as part of your PsyD program with us. Emphasis areas focus on a specific branch of leadership, while concentrations offer cultural competence and additional opportunities to hone your ability to lead diverse groups.
