About William James College

On May 7, 2015, the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, founded in 1974, officially adopted their new name, William James College. Since its founding, an education at MSPP/William James College has meant classroom instruction that creatively integrates psychological theory and research with critical self-knowledge and clinical illustrations offered by supervisors, colleagues and a practitioner faculty. William James (1842-1910), the founder of American psychology is considered to be one of the most influential and innovative thinkers of the 19th century, and he was the mentor to, among others, John Dewey, the architect of experiential learning. William James championed diversity and access to education across race and gender lines; he promoted openness to wide ranging social perspectives; and he promoted a more practical application of psychology.

William James College strives to be a preeminent school of psychology that integrates rigorous academic instruction with extensive field education and close attention to professional development. They assume an ongoing social responsibility to create programs to educate specialists of many disciplines to meet the evolving mental health needs of society.

With a population of nearly 700,000, Boston, MA has been called the "Athens of America" and is widely viewed as the intellectual and historic capital of the United States. It is a cosmopolitan city with a complete set of services, a wide range of amenities, and a rich tradition and culture. With a modern, attractive, and completely walkable downtown, Boston is dotted with Revolutionary period historic sites along the Freedom Trail and preserved old streetscapes mixed in with modern commercial office buildings.

Surrounding suburbs offer an excellent and well used commuter rail system. Each neighborhood has its own little town center that is functional, accessible by the rail system, and filled with local businesses. Arts and culture amenities in downtown Boston and the entire surrounding area are exceptional, and most, like the Boston Pops and the Museum of Fine Arts, are well known beyond the city limits. Boston’s professional sports, from baseball to ice hockey, are well loved and nationally well respected. Education, at all levels, is outstanding in the Boston area. Area public schools are nationally recognized and a driving reason people move to the area. Additionally, the entire Boston Metro area is centrally located near everything the Northeast has to offer – skiing in New Hampshire, beaches in Rhode Island, and trips to New York City are all only 2 to 3 hours away.

Visiting Faculty appointments are expected to last 2-3 years and are appropriate for individuals seeking a time-limited academic position.

William James College is committed to an active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with diversity—in people, in the curriculum, in the co-curriculum, and in the college’s intellectual, social, cultural, and geographical communities. William James College endorses a framework of inclusive excellence, which recognizes that institutional excellence comes from fully engaging with diversity in all aspects of institutional activities.

Successful applicants will also have a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity, inclusion, and multicultural competence in an educational and work environment and must be willing to contribute to the College’s strategic plan of inclusion. The department welcomes applications from individuals who may have had nontraditional career paths, or who may have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia. Applicants must be able to assume employment in the United States without College Sponsorship.
