The program emphasizes human diversity, specializing in research and intervention work with underserved communities.

The Community Psychology from DePaul University is a combined degree program. The MA is non-terminal, and the program admits only students intending to earn the PhD. Classes are offered during the day on DePaul’s Lincoln Park Campus, and the program can be completed in six years.
