Earning a Respecialization Certificate gives students the opportunity to gain theory and knowledge in a specialization other than the one they focused on in their degree work. Students complete a unique program of study that accounts for previous coursework and includes courses required to achieve essential knowledge in the new specialization.
Choose from any of the following specializations:
- Educational Psychology
- Forensic Psychology
- General Psychology
- Health Psychology
- Organizational Psychology
- Social Psychology
Time to completion may vary by student, depending on individual progress and credits transferred, if applicable. For a personalized estimate of time to completion, students should call an enrollment advisor at 1-866-492-5336.

Note on licensure:
The respecialization certificates are not licensure programs and do not prepare an individual to become a licensed psychology professional.
The Respecialization Certificates in (Clinical and Counseling Psychology are designed to prepare graduates to qualify to sit for psychology licensing exams. These certificates are designed to meet the academic licensure requirements of many state psychology boards. However, Walden University’s licensure certificates in psychology are not accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and have not received designation by the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards/National Register (ASPPB/NR), which are requirements for licensure in some states. Because no graduate program can guarantee licensure upon graduation, we encourage students to consult the appropriate agency to determine specific requirements. For more information about licensure, students should visit the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards’ Contact Page and contact the appropriate licensing body. International students are encouraged to identify and contact their appropriate licensing body.
