Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Antioch University has five (5) campus locations. The New England location was awarded accreditation (1986), with the American Psychological Association (APA) for their PsyD in Clinical Psychology Program. That being said, I have high hopes that Antioch University--Santa Barbara's location will apply for and obtain its own APA accreditation (as of 2017 the doctoral program is not yet APA accredited, but is showing signs of working toward that goal). AUSB however, is a quality university with a lot of heart! The faculty are passionate about working with their students. Professors are well regarded and provide a level of doctoral learning that is nuanced (this characteristic in of it self is a rarity among many smaller Universities). ASUB is a good fit for those students that are critical thinkers and like to be challenged intellectually. The practitioner-scholar model makes for a rigorous clinical program. The cost of tuition for the PsyD program is well worth it! The school seems to have a great reputation locally among the Santa Barbara Mental Health Community. Keep in mind there is no perfect grad program, it is about what a student is willing to make of it. However, with that being said...Antioch University Santa Barbara is not perfect (no university program is), but does offer a competitive and excellent education that is APA level in my own experience.

My experience at Antioch has been exceptional. Faculty are stringent yet compassionate and accessible. I needed to make a career change, and needed another degree to do it. I made the right choice.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel that my graduate program is great for facilitating learning and developing students in a professional manner. However, I feel that the school is held back by somewhat of a lack of resources and the lack of APA accreditation, although I will say that the school is at least up to APA accreditation standards. I hope that the school is rewarded accreditation within the next couple of years, as it would be very advantageous for everyone involved.
