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.

The MS in Psychology degree program enables students to increase their competencies as professionals in psychology-related fields, while, at the same time, to make an impact on those they serve, strengthened by knowledge of a rich body of Catholic-Christian teachings on the human person. This degree program is 36 credit hours over 2 years of coursework.

A DMU education not only provides a firm foundation in psychology, but also the knowledge and skills necessary to help people develop virtues and flourish as human beings.
