Message from the Chair

If you are interested in the field of psychology, take a closer look at APU. Our Department of Graduate Psychology offers two programs to suit a variety of academic and clinical goals. The Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology: Marriage and Family Therapy is a highly respected program geared toward California state licensure in marriage and family therapy, and is an excellent choice for students seeking solid clinical training in a distinctly personal setting. The Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology: Family Psychology, the recognized degree for today's practitioners, offers a comprehensive approach to psychology education, seeking to produce high caliber practitioner-scholars through balanced emphasis on the science of our programs, orientation to psychology, and commitment to excellence in the education and training of psychologists.

If you would like to learn more about our programs and their benefits, we invite you to visit our campus, tour our facilities, and visit one of our classes. You can meet the current students to hear about their experiences in the programs and with a faculty member to discuss any questions. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
