The doctoral dissertation project requires the student to demonstrate a sound understanding of the scientific process upon which professional competence is based and provide a contribution that may be of an applied nature.
It is expected that the dissertation project be of publishable quality (that is, in the form of a journal or book chapter, or a report for local consumption by practitioners or an agency serving mental health needs) and that an extensive review of theory and previous research serve as a foundation.
The dissertation committee consists of the faculty chair and two additional members.
Students may petition the director of clinical training for permission to have one of their committee members be someone other than a faculty member of Loyola's psychology department.
The dissertation committee chair must be a full-time faculty member, or a core faculty member who has received approval from the committee on graduate studies at Loyola. This matching process will take place for those entering into the first year of the curriculum in the spring of that first year and for those entering into the second year of the curriculum during that first fall semester.
