School Psychology Schools, Colleges & Degree Programs

School psychology is a branch of psychology that uses clinical and educational psychology principles and practices to diagnose and treat children and adolescents dealing with behavioral problems, mental disorders and learning disabilities. As in any other branch of psychology, school psychologists must have a graduate degree in psychology. Graduate level school psychology programs focus on child and adolescent psychopathology, general psychology, child development, early childhood education, learning theories, parenting practices, and personality theories. School psychologists conduct psychoeducational and psychological assessments, counsel children and parents on a regular basis, and are trained to carry out the legal, administrative and ethical codes of their profession. In a nutshell, school psychologists collaborate with students, parents, teachers, and educators in an ongoing effort to promote an emotionally safe and healthy learning environment that children need in order to thrive.

While the majority of school psychologists work in elementary and secondary schools, many work in other areas including hospitals, government agencies, private health clinics and major colleges and universities. Some of the more adventurous and business minded school psychology professionals go into private practice or work as independant consultants, especially those with a doctoral degree in psychology.

In most states, the minimum level of education required to become a licensed, practicing school psychologist is 2 to 3 years of graduate school. However, each state has its own requirements so you'll want to check with your states board of psychology examiners or health care regulating agency to find out specifically what your state requires. Many states now require that students complete a school psychology internship (like a residency program) before they can receive their license to practice, so make sure to find out what the licensing requirements are in your state before you enroll in school psychology graduate program.

Below you'll find an editor compiled list of colleges and universities that provide accredited graduate and undergraduate degree programs in school psychology.
