Established in 1957, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology is housed in state-of-the-art facilities in the recently renovated Louis E. and Dora Rousso building on the Yeshiva University Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus. Our nationally recognized programs prepare doctoral-level psychologists and master’s-level counselors for successful and rewarding careers by providing extensive coursework, practicum and externship experiences and research opportunities. As public awareness and acceptance of mental health issues continues to grow, we remain committed to training psychologists who make a difference in the lives of individuals and society as a whole.
Under the leadership of Dean Lawrence J. Siegel, Ferkauf continues to enjoy a prominent position among our peers, providing top-level academic and field preparation for a group of strong students. The Ferkauf reputation extends beyond our borders: 64 countries are represented in our student body. Our graduates, eligible for New York State licensure in psychology, fill leadership positions in a wide range of institutions.
Among our innovation and collaborations:
- In fall 2007, Ferkauf inaugurated the Center for Public Health Sciences, a joint venture with Yeshiva University's Albert Einstein College of Medicine
- The Clinical Psychology Program (PsyD) remains one of the few doctoral programs in the country to offer specialty training in both cognitive-behavior therapy and psychodynamic therapy
- The School-Clinical Child Psychology Program (PsyD) integrates a multicultural perspective in practice and research to bridge the domains of school, family and the medical and mental health worlds
- The Clinical Psychology Health Emphasis Program (PhD) has conducted cutting-edge research to explore how globalization influences our day-to-day lives as well as our health
- The Mental Health Counseling Program (MA) was one of the first NYSED registered programs qualifying for licensure-eligibility as LMHC's in New York State.
- The Ferkauf Parnes Clinic (PDF) provides on-site clinical training opportunities and practicum experiences for our students
All our programs are registered by the New York State Education Department and meet its requirements.
In 2007 we celebrated our milestone 50th anniversary (PDF), and we continue to build on our excellence.
