The University of New Haven offers one of the oldest graduate programs in Community Psychology in the country.


For more than 40 years, we have successfully prepared graduates for professional careers in mental health and related human services fields.

We provide a distinctive applied psychology education. We offer three program concentrations – community-clinical services, program development, or forensic psychology – that enable our students to tailor the curriculum to meet their individual needs and professional goals.

The Community Psychology program at University of New Haven allows students to simultaneously complete their degree, obtain practical experience, work full-time or part-time, and meet financial obligations. Full-time students can complete the program in two years, and classes are offered during evening hours to accommodate working students.

You’ll prepare for the future by:

  • Learning and training to prevent and treat psychological problems, with an emphasis on interventions within social institutions, organizations and groups, as well as directly with individuals
  • Focusing on community analysis, consultation, program development, administration and evaluation
  • Gaining internship experience at a human service organization or in a community setting
  • Learning to apply your knowledge to enhance and enrich individuals, families, groups, institutions and entire communities
