General Information About Institute for the Psychological Sciences
IPS is a Catholic graduate school of psychology founded in 1999 with the mission of basing the scientific study of psychology on a Catholic understanding of the person, marriage and the family. IPS offers Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctoral (Psy.D.) degrees in Clinical Psychology, and a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in General Psychology, and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS COC). The Institute seeks to provide students an effective academic and educational environment that supports the integration of the psychological sciences and a Catholic understanding of the person through teaching and learning both knowledge and necessary clinical skills. It assists students intellectually and professionally as they prepare themselves to respond to their vocation as mental health professionals. The Institute’s mission also involves dialogue about its integrative approach with practitioners and scholars, nationally and internationally.
