CalSouthern Doctor of Psychology Courses

The following Doctor of Psychology courses comprise the PsyD program at CalSouthern. The PsyD program includes 30 credit hours of required core courses, and 15 credit hours of elective courses, in addition to a doctoral project and other requirements. Although the PsyD and PhD are both respected doctorates, they differ in that the PsyD is an applied degree, clinically focused, as opposed to the PhD, which is more focused on research and scholarly publication.

Core Course Requirements

PSY 87540 Statistical Methods and Analysis

Credits : 3

This course provides instruction on the calculation, use, and interpretation of descriptive and inferential statistics. The focus of study emphasizes the application and interpretation of statistical tests in conducting research at the graduate level. Inferential statistics and their application to research design are introduced. Both parametric and non-parametric approaches to the analysis of data are discussed.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Evaluate course concepts critically and competently through interaction with Learners and Faculty Mentor
  • Integrate course concepts through the use of the Taylor Study Method
  • Assess the concepts underlying appropriate use of various research methodologies
  • Analyze how to recognize the inappropriate or deceptive use of research methodology
  • Compare/contrast the basic assumptions underlying various statistical operations
  • Summarize the consequences of using various methodological approaches
  • Differentiate between the appropriate and inappropriate application and interpretation of research methods and statistics
  • Demonstrate ethical behavior in regard to emerging relevant technologies applicable to psychology
