The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (in Chicago, Los Angeles, Westwood, and Irvine-as well as online-blended programming) is the world's oldest and largest graduate school focused exclusively on psychology and related behavioral sciences. As a professional school, our focus is not strictly on research and theory, but on preparing students to become outstanding practitioners, providing direct service to help individuals and organizations thrive.
We prepare our students with superior theoretical and classroom preparation-coupled with an unrivaled range of real-world training experiences; opportunities to build their multicultural and global sophistication; and ongoing personal and professional mentorship from faculty who are active leaders in their fields. Chicago School students graduate with the knowledge and practical skills they need to make an impact in the world and achieve their goals.
The Chicago School is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and an active member of the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology, which has recognized The Chicago School for its distinguished service and outstanding contributions to cultural diversity and advocacy.
The Chicago School sets sights on the nation's capital
(A proposed D.C. Campus is awaiting approval from the Higher Learning Commission)
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology has been granted a license to operate by the Education and Licensing Commission of the District of Columbia (ELC) and has submitted a request to The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC) to extend our institution's accreditation to include a D.C. location. If approved by HLC, the campus will be accredited and we will be authorized to enroll students at this new campus located in the heart of the nation's capital.
Few cities or metropolitan areas are better matches for our long-held commitment to working within multicultural communities or to addressing the needs of underserved populations. As we await formal approval from HLC, work is well underway to adapt our powerful learning model-in which students learn from seasoned, practitioner faculty and through a wealth of hands-on learning experiences in diverse and challenging settings-to the unique opportunities that Washington has available.
