CPA official logo

The California Psychological Association of Graduate Students (CPAGS) is now offering membership to Alliant International University master's students not enrolled in doctoral programs. The California Psychological Association (CPA), including its graduate student division, is a non-profit professional association for licensed psychologists and others affiliated with the delivery of psychological services. In addition to the role of advocate for the profession of psychology, CPA's members regularly provide free public service through programs such as its Public Education Campaign and its well-respected disaster response service. Further, CPA works closely with the media to provide timely and accurate information in order to demonstrate the positive role that psychology plays in our everyday lives.
