As a specialized school focused exclusively on psychology, our campus communities are smaller than typical broad-based university environments—a fact that students find extremely valuable at the graduate level.

With modestly-sized campuses located in large, urban settings, The Chicago School is able to provide students with the best of both worlds: a close-knit learning environment that allows for frequent interaction and collaboration with faculty and fellow students, in the heart of large metropolitan cities that offer a vast range of opportunities for clinical training, community service, field research, work with diverse populations, professional networking, and fun.


Located directly on the Chicago River, our downtown Chicago Campus is just steps away from Lake Michigan, the theater district, the famed Magnificent Mile, dozens of museums, and some of the world’s top restaurants and clubs. Chicago is often described as a colorful “patchwork quilt” of diverse neighborhoods and provides a true multicultural environment for your educational training.
