About the School

Cal Lutheran'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 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

Our 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 collaboration between student, staff, and faculty to promote integrity, ethics, innovation, professional development, diversity, equity, and inclusion. We serve the community, diverse populations, and the underserved in Ventura and Western Los Angeles counties through clinical services, outreach, community partnerships, and research.

Vision Statement

We aspire to be a national leader in mental health educational programs. We are committed to providing quality academic programs and clinical services developing additional clinical, research, and educational partnerships; fostering leadership, innovation, professional success, diversity, equity, and inclusion of students, staff, and faculty; increasing Graduate School of Psychology visibility and reputation regionally and nationally; and improving through the mechanisms of accreditation, program review, and stakeholder consultation.
