About Divine Mercy University

In 1999, a group of psychologists and academicians saw the immense need for an institution of higher education that incorporates the Catholic-Christian vision of the human person with the science of psychology. We believe in the dignity of the human person and a calling to alleviate suffering. The Institute for the Psychological Sciences (IPS) at Divine Mercy University offers doctoral and master’s graduate degree programs rooted in the integration of academic psychology with theological and philosophical teaching.
