The majority of all practicing clinical psychologist has a doctorate and are licensed. The doctorate would take approximately four years after the bachelor's degree to complete. The degree can run up to 60 credits in coursework particular to a specific field of study. The actual length of time depends much on how much time it takes a student to prepare and defend their dissertation which typically follows the prescribed credit coursework . The dissertation is an individual student project advancing an original point of view on a topic of the students choice. It is developed through extensive supporting research and must be approved by the designated committee.
