Improving Lives and Relationships



"There is an integration of various theoretical models and their application to counseling and clinical settings that you won't find at many other institutions.

"Most importantly, it is obvious that the professors and administration are invested in our success both academically and professionally. They really care."

California Lutheran University's Graduate School of Psychology is comprised of three academic graduate programs and two community counseling centers. We offer a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD), Master of Science in Counseling Psychology (MFT and LPCC tracks), and a research focused Master of Science in Clinical Psychology. Our active community counseling centers provide clinical and research opportunities for our graduate students who provide services to children, adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups.

Mission Statement: The Graduate School of Psychology’s mission is to provide graduate students in clinical and counseling psychology with a high-quality, relevant, educational experience that integrates theoretical and applied learning.  Class sizes are small which allows for personalized attention in a well supervised, hands-on learning environment. All programs emphasize continuous quality improvement with attention to student, staff, and faculty integrity, ethics, innovation, and professional development. We serve the community, diverse populations, and the underserved in Ventura and Western LA County through clinical services, outreach, and research.

Vision Statement:The Graduate School of Psychology’s vision is to continue to improve and refine our programs and clinics through the mechanisms of accreditation, program review, and stakeholder consultation; develop additional clinical, research, and educational partnerships; increase GSoP visibility and reputation regionally and nationally; and foster leadership, innovation, and professional success in students, staff, and faculty.
