The Chicago School of Professional Psychology’s Chicago Campus

For 38 years, The Chicago School has been an innovator of psychology and behavioral science. Our Chicago Campus is an accredited, not-for-profit institution that offers hands-on courses taught by world-class faculty. From counseling to organizational leadership, every degree program places a great emphasis on field experience and networking.

Located directly on the famous Chicago River in the heart of downtown Chicago, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology’s Chicago Campus is centered in one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the United States.

Because The Chicago School focuses exclusively on psychology and related behavioral science fields, Chicago Campus students receive an unparalleled education.

Chicago Campus graduates have gone on to work for organizations like North Shore Pediatric Therapy, YMCA of the USA, and the U.S. Department of Defense. Our in-depth, engaged approach prepares students for careers serving communities like Chicago and beyond.

The Chicago School’s Chicago Campus

Our Chicago location is just steps away from Lake Michigan, the theatre district, the famed Magnificent Mile, dozens of museums, and some of the world’s top restaurants and clubs. Plus, there’s always an opportunity to grab some classic Chicago deep dish pizza.

Sometimes described as a colorful “patchwork quilt” of diverse neighborhoods—including Greek, Chinese, Mexican, Swedish, Ukrainian, and more—Chicago provides a true multicultural environment for your educational training.

Chicago APA Reaccreditation

The Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association (APA) has reaccredited The Chicago School’s Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology program at our Chicago campus. Noting their appreciation in The Chicago School’s commitment “to develop and maintain the best possible quality of graduate education and training in psychology,” the APA has determined that The Chicago School’s Psy.D. program continues to align with their strict standards.

Networking and field experience at The Chicago School

Through a vast network of agencies, community-based organizations, and practicing professionals, our Chicago Campus offers a remarkable level of field experience and networking opportunities.

At The Chicago School, we encourage students to stay engaged in the psychology and behavioral science communities. Some of the professional organizations that Chicago Campus students network with are the Illinois Association for Behavior Analysis, the Chicago Society for Human Resource Management, and the Illinois Psychological Association.

We also believe that immersive, multicultural field experiences foster a community of engaged, diverse professionals. Chicago Campus students don’t just learn about what it means to be an engaged community member—they’re already making a meaningful difference in the city itself.

Through hundreds of training prospects, Chicago students conduct research and assessments, provide counseling and clinical services, assist with developing and launching new programs, and participate in strategic planning efforts.
