M.A. International Psychology

Program Description:

The online M.A. International Psychology program prepares students to use the theory and practice of psychology to provide services to individuals and groups working in international settings or those whose work involves addressing international issues. Students will learn to apply both Western and non-Western theoretical concepts to the development of effective global practices and the interpretation and management of behaviors across diverse cultures. Graduates are prepared to excel as leaders sensitive to cultural differences and prepared to promote social justice in an increasingly globalized world.

As the first graduate school in the nation to develop a Ph.D. in International Psychology, The Chicago School is uniquely qualified to offer this program, which has been designed for working adults embarking on a career in international psychology or those working in the international arena who want to make a difference in the fields of mental health, human capacity building, organizational development or environmental advocacy. A flexible and convenient online delivery model enables students to take courses from home, while hands-on training opportunities reinforce concepts learned in the virtual classroom.

Students will benefit from a choice of three unique concentration areas including Trauma and Group Conflict, Management and Leadership, or Environmental Advocacy. In addition, students will be required to participate in at least one international field experience (9 days or more) to gain further understanding of complex socio-cultural, political, and economic global structures.

The online M.A. in International Psychology program does not lead to licensure or certification.
