Why MSP?

Learning from the Inside Out

“I graduated from MSP with my master’s in clinical psychology in 2022 and continued into the doctoral program. I value the humanistic approach, the intimate setting, and the smaller class size. These qualities, along with the support from the administration and the incredible knowledge of clinical skills and practice the professors impart, contribute significantly to supporting the level of education and experience I receive.”  -Kimberly Forbes-Dyczkowski

Why should you choose MSP for your graduate education? Because there’s no other place like it. When you walk through our doors, you step into an environment that is rich in human interaction, and collaboration, while focusing on realizing one’s full potential. At MSP each individual’s uniqueness is valued; students learn to accept and prize others and to more fully understand the human experience.

In a rigorous academic and clinical environment, students experience the personal growth that results from self-study, self-acceptance, and self-confidence. Our cohort model acts as a laboratory for the study of relationship. Students are given the opportunity to discover their inner resources as a means of becoming effective change instruments for others.
