"As adults, we often have family and professional responsibilities. Fielding gives us the opportunity to learn at a pace that's comfortable for us."

-George Cave, PhD, Alumnus

Balance Treatment Center
Fielding’s School of Psychology offers the only accredited clinical psychology doctoral program with a delivery model that does not require a specific, physical location in order to facilitate learning. The program has been accredited  by the American Psychological Association (APA Commission on Accreditation, 750 First St. NE, Washington, DC 20002, 202.336.5979) since 1991.
Uniquely serving adults, the program utilizes distributed delivery for many classes combined with residential sessions and training experiences in the student's local community.

Generalist or Specialist Options

Faculty are active scholars and practitioners. Many are nationally recognized and published in their professional areas of specialization. Although the program follows a generalist training model, faculty members have a variety of clinical specializations, making it possible to offer optional areas of concentration and exposure to a variety of therapeutic orientations.

The Fielding Experience

As a Fielding student, you become a member of a dynamic and diverse community of faculty, students, and alumni colleagues. Designed for adult learners, distributed learning makes it possible to pursue advanced study and professional goals while balancing the demands of work, family, and community obligations. During your time at Fielding, you will interact with and learn from our faculty located all across the country. A designated local faculty mentor will meet with you in a monthly cluster group which includes other highly qualified fellow learners in your geographic area. You also engage with other faculty, students, and alumni from across the country at session events. Fielding places great value in its richly diverse community. 

Geographic Eligibility

Due to individual state licensure requirements, applications are accepted only from individuals who reside in the contiguous United States (except Oklahoma, Georgia, and Kansas) and Canada. The program is not offered in Hawaii, Alaska, or internationally (except to Canadian students).
