A Message from the Dean of Psychology

Welcome to the Harold Abel School of Psychology at Capella University. We offer programs, specializations, and certificate programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels that provide education in the science and practice of psychology to prepare learners for employment in a wide variety of occupational settings. Over the last 20 years, graduates of our competency-based programs have attained success in meeting both their personal and professional goals and have contributed to their communities in meaningful ways. Learners will gain psychological knowledge and skills that are useful in every aspect of life and work, from understanding how we learn, think, and remember, to discovering how we are motivated to complete everything from our daily tasks to our life’s work.

We are committed to offering you a challenging, efficient, and supportive path to achieve your goals. A learner-centered focus is ingrained in our approach to education, as we believe that every person can become a more productive citizen of the world given the opportunity and support needed to succeed. We are delighted to have you join the Harold Abel School of Psychology!
