The School Psychology Program is phasing out the previous accredited version of the program.

The outgoing program has been continually accredited by APA since 1992.

A new program is admitting students; applications are due January 15. The new program will seek full accreditation by APA. The new program will focus on mental health issues facing children and adolescents and their families.

The program is structured to offer the PhD degree, with an EdS option available to students who are enrolled. Graduates with degrees in school psychology have had successful careers in schools, medical settings, mental health organizations, and private practice.

Contact Ann Santos, PhD ( to learn more about the new program.
