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 is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and has played an integral role in training clinical psychology students in Arizona.

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; we are committed to student learning and mentoring and maintain a strong focus on applying theory and research to clinical practice. During practicum training, students have the opportunity to gain experience at state psychiatric facilities, mental health clinics, VA hospitals, forensic sites, child and adolescent facilities, 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 602.842.0244.

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


Frederick S. Wechsler, Ph.D., Psy.D., ABPP (Clinical) Professor and Program Dean
