Having read a number of threads that discuss first professional degrees and DETC, I am interested in pursuing the discussion further about the Psy.D. It seems to me this would meet the first professional degree requirements for DETC for a number of reeasons. First, all states that license psychologists rerquire the doctorate. They do not license pscyhologists with master's degrees. Yes there are some states who license psychometrists and psychological associates, but those are not considered equal to a licensed psychologist. Based on this thinking, the Psy.D. seems a logical candidate for DETC accreditation. Would love to hear further discussion. The MBA and MDiv seem to negate those options for DBA and Dmin because you can enter the profession with the earlier degrees.
