Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

The clinical psychology Ph.D program at University of Louisville is top notch
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Clinical Psychology doctoral program at University of Louisville is notably rigorous and research-centered. The first two years of training are centered on clinical skills acquisition, publications, and writing experience. The second two years are heavily focused on research including research design and implementation. The final year is spent on internship. Internship match rate is considerably high in comparison to other programs, excluding 2014. Training is CBT oriented, although psychodynamic and integrative approaches can be explored with specific professors. Doctoral students begin seeing clients their first semester at the Psychological Services Center, a student-run community mental health clinic located on campus.

While most of the faculty I have gotten to work with have been nothing but successful and supportive, there have been a few instances of politics and such within the department, which does impact the graduate student experience depending on the outcome of those politics. I don't find that we have great recruitment efforts, but I would consider the program itself to be pretty high in quality to create a well-rounded graduate.

It is clear that the faculty and staff care deeply about their students and want to do their best to ensure that we have the best and highest quality experience during our time here. The students are friendly and very supportive and helpful. The program has a great, supportive rather than competitive attitude and atmosphere, and it's great to feel like there's always someone I can ask for help if I need it.

Graduation Year: 2015

As a whole the graduate program provides a supportive and exceptional experience. The quality of life for students is far above average. The con that has surfaced over the past 3.5 years is that the bottom line for student satisfaction is very dependent on their advising professor. The department as a whole does not have enough influence if the professor does not maintain the same level of standards. Students can avoid this issue by choosing a professor that others recommend. If problems arise early enough the department can relocate the student, but in the later stages there was not a viable resolution for continuing to pursue the degree.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Louisville has a stellar Clinical Psychology graduate program. The program is research focused and accomplished, but there is not a competitive feel. Rather, the atmosphere is cohesive and both students and faculty are extremely supportive. Graduate students are considered as junior colleagues rather than students and this is an excellent professional development environment. One drawback is that the program is fairly small and there is not a lot of overlap with the experimental program. Many opportunities are available for specialized training but students must take the initiative to seek them out.
