There are many different facets to the study of psychology.  At MSP we focus on the humanistic perspective as we develop our master and PsyD students into strong clinical psychologists.  As you research colleges and universities to find the graduate school for you, we encourage you to understand the differences between psychological perspectives and focuses.  While many psychological schools of thought and research are a part of our curriculum, we focus on humanistic psychology and clinical practice.  Below you can find out more about different schools of thought, the differences between an MA degree and an MA degree with a concentration in ABA, and the difference between a PhD and PsyD degree.
