Letter From The Dean

Dear Prospective Student,

I’m delighted that you’ve shown interest in the Arizona School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University (ASPP). Our Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program has been accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) since 2001. The 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.

The rigorous curriculum 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 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.

ASPP follows a practitioner-scholar model of clinical psychology with optional concentrations in Neuropsychology and Diversity. We are committed to student learning and mentoring, and we maintain a strong focus on applying theory and research to clinical practice. Many of our alumni teach as adjunct professors and/or supervise students during practicum training where students gain experience in varied clinical settings including state psychiatric facilities, mental health clinics, VA hospitals, forensic sites, child and adolescent facilities, geriatric clinics and group-based private practice settings.

If you have questions about our program, or if you would like to discuss the admissions process, please contact our admissions representative, Michael Hohenstein, at 602.216.3137.

We’re looking forward to helping you reach your potential.


Eric Johnson, Psy.D., Program Dean
