Forge Your Own Professional Path

Chatham's Master of Science of Counseling Psychology (MSCP) and Doctorate of Counseling Psychology (PsyD) programs empower students to pursue their interests to guide their studies and research as well as make a positive impact in the communities in which they are involved. This way, students can create lives of purpose in the areas in which they will work after they graduate.

Class Work = Real Work

At Chatham, what we do in the classroom matters. From innovative problem-based learning that enhances job skills to research projects with important findings, your class time will be devoted to what prepares you most in your field of study. Watch this video to learn how Sustainability Masters student Camilla Cook is making a difference in Homewood.

Hands-On Experience in Making a Difference

Seeing your education and experience come to life in the service of others is unforgettable—whether you’re improving the health of our communities or our planet, or just one person at a time. Watch Physical Therapy students at Chatham University help a young girl experience the joy of movement and play with the GoBabyGo! program.

Local Looks, Worldwide Relevance

Pittsburgh is the perfect proving ground for innovative ideas. With the city’s renaissance from steel town to hub of health, sustainability, education, and more, your experience on the local scale will prepare you to work anywhere. Through partnerships between programs like Masters in Food Studies (MAFS) & Masters in Food Studies (MAFS) + MBA and companies like La Prima, our students are out in the real world, working on real problems and, more importantly, taking advantage of real opportunities.

Find Your Voice

Chatham’s inclusive and welcoming classrooms allow you to create a space to share your talents, find your voice, and connect with others. Just one example is Word Circus, a monthly reading series presented by the Chatham MFA Creative Writing Program in collaboration with Most Wanted Fine Art Gallery.
