School Psychology focuses on mental health issues facing children and adolescents and their families. The program's goal is to prepare doctoral-level school psychologists who will promote psychology as a science and contribute to the advancement of the profession.

The faculty endorses a scientist/practitioner model of training and expects students to become competent researchers and proficient practitioners. Graduates with degrees in school psychology find successful careers in schools, medical settings, mental health organizations, and private practice.
