The Columbia Psychology Postbac Certificate Program has been helping non-psychology college graduates successfully pursue graduate training in the field since 1999. It is appropriate for students interested in graduate study in all areas of psychology. Our graduates have gone on to programs in clinical, counseling, cognitive, social and school psychology, as well as programs in social work and public health. It is geared toward preparing students for admission to Ph.D. or Psy.D. psychology programs, as well as certain masters level programs.
The majority of the Postbac Certificate Program’s 8 requirements can be easily structured around individual student interests (e.g., Distribution requirements, an Advanced Seminar and Supervised Research) with the support and advice of the faculty. The advisement aims to maximize student satisfaction as well as their future graduate application.
