Letter From The Dean

Dear Prospective Student,

I’m delighted that you’ve shown interest in the Hawai`i School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University (HSPP). Our Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program is designed to train practitioner-scholars to be proficient in the empirical and theoretical underpinnings of integrated, behavioral health interventions while remaining perceptive to cultural, contextual, and socioeconomic environments of individuals and communities.

Argosy University’s legacy of teaching and training students to become clinical psychologists spans more than four decades. Accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA), this is one of only two clinical psychology doctoral programs available in Hawaii, and it is the only one designed under the practitioner-scholar model.

The rigorous curriculum of the program not only prepares students for licensure, but also seeks to engage their intellectual and relational capacities in addition to inviting them to experience a transformative relationship with both themselves and the world.

You’ll be joining a diverse community of students who are active, engaged, and socially conscious. Our outstanding faculty of professors and supervisors represent a comprehensive range of talent and perspectives, and they are committed to helping you fulfill your academic, life, and professional goals.

We prepare students to serve diverse populations and meet the mental health needs of the state as well as those across the greater Pacific Rim.

If you have questions about our program or would like to discuss the admissions process, please contact our admissions representative, Lisa Trumbull, at 800.280.0926.
