Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is a great program for self-starters and for individuals who are extremely independent. The curriculum provides a thorough understanding of Industrial and Organizational Psychology and how it will be applied to real world practice. The program overviews theory but teaches you the skills necessary for practice. This program is NOT for students who went to schools where they were predominately guided by the professor. This program is treated more like a PhD program where there is a HIGH degree of autonomy. The professors I learned from where high level senior executives in large organizations such as Ford, Bonaventure Hotels, Willis Tower Watson, California Edison and professors from New York University. This program is generally built for working professionals who have a full-time job. The program lacks student services and financial services as these functions are remotely handled by the main Chicago Campus.

From the get go the admission counselors at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology were extremely informational and helpful. I met a few of the faculty before starting school and they were also phenomenal. The campus is beautiful and the program was more than I could of hoped for.

I was in an online program through my school and would not recommend the program itself, but I did think it was a great school. The degree opened up many doors for me.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is a not for profit institution that has equipped me with the knowledge base to become a clinical mental health practitioner. Teachers and staff are very helpful and resourceful. I am very satisfied with the curriculum and training they provide. Class schedules are flexible.

I attended when the ABA program was new. The school is in a great location and facility is nice. The program had some kinks to iron out but overall, I learned a tremendous amount and felt prepared to work in the field

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010

While I really enjoyed the diversity aspect of the school, I did not feel that they prepared students well enough to transition into the working world. I wish that there would have been more support, throughout the entire process of finishing out practicum and applying to take the exam. Lastly, it was very costly. I believe I could have found a more affordable but equally as competitive program.
