School of Professional Studies

The School of Professional Studies (SPS) is home to OLLU's premier programs in communication disorders, criminal justice, education, sociology and psychology. Hands-on learning is the focus in all of the degree programs with practica, internships and student-teaching built into the curriculum. In addition, two University-operated clinics - one for communication disorders and one that provides family, couple and individual psychotherapy - give students the opportunity to work with real clients in a setting supervised by faculty.

All of the programs in the School of Professional Studies prepare students to be culturally sensitive and offer optional bilingual/bicultural certification.
