WCU Launches Two New Degrees
WCU continues to evolve a curriculum that meets regional needs for learners and employers. To that end, two new programs have been approved: a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in clinical psychology and a Bachelor of Science in international business. Both enroll their first students this fall. West Chester is the only public university offering Psy.D. training in southeastern Pennsylvania; most programs in this region are in private institutions. Two specializations set the program apart: one in Adolescent Clinical Mental Health and another in Post-Traumatic Stress (broadly defined, not just military PTSD). No other competing programs focus on adolescents. Click here to read more.
