SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – Psychology is the nation’s number one university major said Wendy Vasquez-Osborn, interim campus president of Argosy University/Inland Empire. “It’s the fastest growing department at Argosy, and also throughout America’s colleges and universities,” she said.

Argosy University has helped working professionals succeed for more than 30 years. San Bernardino’s Inland Empire campus, however, celebrates its first year this June. “We’re just a year old here,” she says, “but growing at an astounding rate. We recently hired our first full-time faculty member in Psychology. More full-time teaching staff are expected in the near future, too.”

Dr. David Sellen is a full-time faculty member in the Psychology Department. He joined Argosy full-time in May after a year as an adjunct professor. “We have about 150 students in the department now,” Sellen says, “and we’ll be adding 25-30 each semester. It’s very exciting.”

Sellen teaches such courses as clinical psychology, testing, counseling, psychotherapy, research techniques and forensics. In forensics, Sellen has spent 25 years aiding the justice systems of Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties, testifying in countless cases. He possesses a law degree from Southwestern University in Los Angeles as well as a Doctorate in Neuropsychology from the University of Southern California.

“I’ll be assisting students who want to learn about human behavior and also those who plan to enter professional practice, education, forensics or do clinical research,” he said. “I have a staff of well-seasoned professionals in the department, and I’m proud of each one.”

Sellen has an enviable background, too, as a lecturer and as a counselor and trainer on violence in the workplace.
