Walden University licensure specializations in psychology are not accredited by the American Psychological Association, which is a requirement for licensure in some states. Because no graduate psychology program can guarantee licensure upon graduation, we encourage students to consult the appropriate agency to determine specific requirements.

All applicants must have a master's degree from an accredited institution.
