The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

Illinois - United States


The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) is a not-for-profit, accredited institution with more than 4,300 students at campuses across the country (Chicago, Southern California, and Washington, D.C.) and online. TCSPP has been an innovator in the field of psychology and related behavioral science since 1979. TCSPP offers more than 20 degree programs and a wealth of opportunities for international experiences.

Central to our transformational impact on students, their communities, and the practice of psychology is The Engaged Professional Model of Education. This groundbreaking approach to training leverages the talents and experience of faculty practitioners, who work with our Community Partnership and Applied Professional Practice teams to provide students a rich spectrum of clinical training in a wide range of community settings. In fact, the school was the first of its kind to be named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for its leadership in service and civic engagement.

Our graduates emerge with unrivaled skills, and ready to make much-needed changes in the communities they serve. They work around the world in hospitals, schools, community centers, agencies, NGOs, private practice, and elsewhere. Our graduates blend a sophisticated understanding of the human experience with high-quality practice in fields such as Child & Adolescent Psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis, Clinical Psychology, Forensic Psychology, International Psychology, and more.

The Chicago School is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools & Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) and is 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.
