At the Rutgers University Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, we provide the nation’s highest quality doctoral education and training, which develops outstanding practitioners and fosters personal leadership to advance the practice and field of professional psychology. Since the establishment of our Psychological Clinic in 1929 and the school’s founding in 1974, we have become the “gold standard” in the education and training of qualified and competent direct-service psychologists.
The mission of GSAPP is threefold: education, research/scholarship, and public service.

Professionals receiving a doctoral degree in psychology should be capable of extending psychological knowledge and exhibiting the high level of analytic skills and theoretical understanding needed to use existing and emerging psychological knowledge.
