PsyD Learning Outcomes
GSEP is committed to a learner-centered approach in the programs we offer. Each program has a set of objectives that a student graduating from the program is expected to achieve. The knowledge and skills taught in the program might be introduced in some courses. In other courses, students are asked to apply knowledge by practicing skills and demonstrating their abilities. Within the program, the values and dispositional attributes important for individuals entering the profession are emphasized.

- PLO 1: Students will demonstrate competency in applying psychological theory and scientific knowledge to an understanding of psychological dysfunction, maladaptation, and psychopathology.
