Program Description:

The Chicago School’s Ph.D. in International Psychology attracts passionate world learners who want to make an impact in an increasingly diverse and global society. The International Program—the first of its kind in the nation—prepares graduates to assume leadership roles in multinational organizations or organizations with international missions. The program’s vision of empowering students and faculty to be advocates for international psychology initiatives is renowned and unrivaled.

Graduates are equipped with expert research and program evaluation skills coupled with a deep appreciation for the individual and group consequences of global events—tools that prepare them to apply psychological principles in the development of policy, to help individuals and organizations better understand and collaborate with diverse cultural populations, and to design and evaluate the efficacy of international programs.

Our curriculum offers excellent preparation in the foundation of international psychological study. Students are encouraged to choose their own specialization to support their personal interests and career focus. Two concentrations are available within the field of International Psychology: Organizations and Systems, or Trauma Services. 

Each student works closely with a designated faculty mentor who offers guidance on potential career paths and international networking opportunities.  Through faculty mentorship, opportunities for student to engage in scholarly activities are promoted, such as conference presentations and publications.


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.
