Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

It varies highly depending on your advisor. The course load is quite manageable if you're not in the Clinical department. Not very geared towards developing teachers, more about the research component.

For those interested in studying psychopathology and its treatment, UPenn's clinical psych program is among the best in the world.

Very strong program, academically and in terms of professional networking. The surrounding area and the city of Philadelphia leaves much to be desired - lots of petty crimes and lack of a secure feeling in the University City area. But that is due entirely to the city and not the University.

The psychology graduate program at Penn is challenging, rewarding, and very supportive.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I am enrolled in the Masters of Applied Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. This unique program with an executive design makes it possible to return to school while working and living outside of Philadelphia. The work load is intense, but plenty of support is available and the rewards are high both personally and professionally. I am grateful to be a part of this program!

Like most programs, what a student gets out of the program is heavily influenced by who their advisor is. However, there is a reasonably strong graduate student community, and the graduate students support each other in many very valuable ways.
