Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

By December 20th, 2017 I will have completed the Clinical and Counseling Psychology program at Chestnut Hill College's satellite campus located in Center Valley, PA. Every professor that I had the pleasure of having were either actively practicing within an agency or a private practice, or were no longer practicing in the field but have extensive experience and case studies to share. I can confidently say that I'm leaving the program a more insightful, confident, and self-compassionate individual. Not only does Chestnut Hill College's program mold you to become a wonderful therapist for others, it encourages you to become more gentle and loving towards yourself. After all, if you do not treat yourself with compassion and care, it will inevitably become impossible to do the same for others.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2014

Chestnut Hill College had a lot of diversity in its curriculum and student body. The professors and advisors made sure that I received the best guidance possible for my future career and educational endeavors. I graduated with a 3.68 GPA and finished with honors and am a member of Tau Upsilon Honor Society. The faculty makes sure that the students are aware of any scholarships that may become available to them as a Human Services Major.

I am in the Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) Program at Chestnut Hill College. I am thoroughly challenged and satisfied in this program, and really enjoy the support within the cohort system and from faculty members.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

This school is driven to give each student a valuable education that enhances their personal strengths as counselors. I believe I am a better counselor and a better person after the interactions and education I have received at Chestnut Hill.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

CHC's Psy.D. program generally has a strong community-oriented atmosphere where the professors want to see their students succeed. There is a strong emphasis on education for the sake of application in the job market, rather than for busywork or competitiveness among students. Compared to what I have seen and heard from other programs in the area, I am extremely happy with my choice to attend this program. The only main drawbacks to this program are the small library (which can be overcome via the use of interlibrary loan) and the pressure of finding your own practicum sites (although this prepares students for the real world job market).

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Embarking on a new journey as a graduate student their are a lot of uncertainties and apprehensions one may have. Chestnut Hill College allows the typical graduate student to feel at home. The faculty and staff do a outstanding job creating avenues where one can ask questions and gain a great sense of support and security by using class time to address those easily overlooked subjects. Another advantage of going to this college is that it's very economical. With the cost of education skyrocketing Chestnut Hill provides many opportunities for any type of student to receive scholarships and feel comfortable taking this journey without the constant concern of being in even deeper debt when everything is said and done. While Chestnut Hill gives some insight in what to do next after graduating it would be beneficial to have more guidance and information on opportunities after graduation. None-the-less, Chestnut Hill is an awesome school where one can learn, achieve, and build relationships that will last a life time.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I think that the program and the faculty are wonderful. The work load is challenging but not impossible. The surrounding area is nice, but expensive and trying to balance working with class work is hard. With practicum placements beginning soon working is going to be even more difficult, so any additional financial aid would make the experience much more enjoyable.

Degree: Psychology

The student population is small and intimate; conducive for those who are seeking one on one support. The MS Clinical Psychology program at CHC is well sought after in the Philadelphia area.
