PACIFIC GRADUATE SCHOOL OF PSYCHOLOGY As a prospective student choosing among a number of outstanding programs in psychology, you are probably aware that the professional school in clinical psychology is a relatively new development. Although PGSP, founded in 1975, is older than most professional schools, it is still relatively young compared to many traditional institutions of higher education. But we have developed a distinctive strategy for combining the advantages of a professional school and a traditional university. We have worked out cooperative relationships with such institutions as Stanford University, the University of San Francisco, Golden Gate University, and the Palo Alto Veterans Health Administration.
