Licensing Steps with the Board of Psychology (BOP)
Please note that the RDGS PsyD degree program does not lead to licensure as a psychologist, although it meets the Board of Psychology's necessary academic requirements for a doctoral program. If an RDGS graduate desires to pursue licensure as a psychologist upon receiving the RDGS PsyD degree, they must follow the steps outlined in the most recent regulations and requirements set forth by the California Board of Psychology. Please note that graduates must be licensed with the Board of Psychology in order to use the title of psychologist in California. For more information, visit http://psychology.ca.gov.
