Josh KalmanJosh Kalman, M.S. – Bethesda, MD After taking numerous courses in psychology that treated religion and truth as something that is purely a personal experience, I began to see where the secular schools are lacking.  I decided that I wanted to go to a school where religion is not taboo, and where the students and faculty are focused on the whole person.”

Marie Claire Roderick Indoors CROPPEDMarie Claire Roderick, M.S. “I’ve had amazing external clinical experiences at the HSC Pediatric Center at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC, and with the Neurobehavioral Group at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD.”

Fr. Joseph TatroFr. Joseph Tatro, M.S. – Wichita, KS “My priestly work made it clear to me that there is an urgent need to combine the spiritual and psychological in order to truly serve in our wounded culture.  IPS is exactly what I had hoped for: excellence in clinical theory and training in psychology combined with the rich teaching on the human person as articulated by the Catholic Church.”

Nick-Stevens,M.S. Nick Stevens, M.S. – Pittsburgh, PA “To my knowledge, no other graduate school could better prepare me to be a professional in the Army and in the clinical practice of psychology.  I’ve learned more in a year about the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, and theology than in four years of college.”
