St. Louis

The St. Louis site of the School of Professional Psychology at Forest Institute brings Forest's commitment to enrich the community, advance the training of psychology students and serve clients to Missouri's largest metropolitan area. Medicine is a major sector of St. Louis' economy, and Forest students can take advantage of the plethora of opportunities for training afforded to them.

The Forest Institute—St. Louis offers three programs – the Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology (MACL), Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis (MSABA) and the Board Certified Behavior Analyst® Certificate. Our night-time curriculum was crafted with working professionals in mind. The course schedules are flexible. Students can focus on just two courses per semester or choose to tackle as many as four at a time. Each course meets two nights per week for eight weeks during the Fall and Spring semesters and two nights per week during the Summer semesters. The MACL is tailored for students seeking the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) designation. The MSABA graduates and those completing the certificate program are eligible to take the exam to become Board-Certified Behavior Analysts®, which is recognized nationwide. Our graduates are also prepared to pursue doctoral studies.
