Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Grad Degree Search has created the Best Value General Psychology Doctor's Degree Schools to help you in your search for the best school for you. This report analyzed 119 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value doctor's degree programs for psychology students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
