Program Description:

Antioch University Seattle offers a Master of Arts in Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology through the School of Applied Psychology, Counseling and Family Therapy. Through a commitment to cultural diversity and social justice, these two graduate psychology programs train students to be passionate at using their psychological practice in a way that makes a difference in their community.


There are a variety of educational and training options at Antioch University, including degree programs, clinical work, research studies, and community outreach projects. Students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a clinical setting under the guidance of trained and relevant staff. These clinics provide a variety of counseling opportunities for members of the local community who are seeking therapy, giving students the chance to apply what they are learning while helping clients in their area.


Antioch is also unique in being the only school of its kind with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology program that features an Art Therapy component, which gives clients a wider range with which to express themselves. This aspect of the program is recognized by the American Art Therapy Association.


Prospective students have the option of undertaking their studies full- or part-time, with full-time studies taking at least four years to complete. Two of these four years are spent doing hands-on clinical work, and following completion of the program, there is an additional year of internship. This timeline is naturally extended for part-time studies.


As a non-profit university, Antioch University's goals are rooted in social-consciousness and global awareness, which they promote on their many campuses across the United States. Since its inception, the University has remained dedicated to open-minded yet comprehensive studies ranging a broad range of disciplines.


The Master of Arts in Psychology has three primary concentrations for students to choose from:

    * Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy
    * Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling
    * Master of Arts in Integrative Studies in Psychology
