Our International Counseling Psychology Master of Arts (MA) program is offered at Alliant International University’s Mexico City campus. Students earn a United States-issued graduate degree in a dynamic international hub. Students benefit from the double advantage of an enriching experience and the chance to gain culturally competent practice modalities to help you assist diverse families in our global society.
The program is based on the principles of Liberation Social Psychology (la psicología social de la liberación), which was initiated by Salvadorian Jesuit Ignacio Martín-Baró. Training focuses on the development of both critical consciousness and solid clinical skills.
