School Psychology Program

Our nationally accredited graduate program in school psychology, leading to a M.Ed. or Ed.S. degree, prepares you for the School Psychologist license in Ohio, so you can effectively address the learning and mental health needs of children in school settings.

Following the science practitioner model, the cohort-based program focuses on assessment and interventions through both direct service delivery to children and their families and indirect services including consultation, teacher training, and parent workshops. Through extensive field training, which begins in the first year of the program and concludes with a final year of full-time, supervised field study, you’ll gain solid hands-on experience and build the skills needed to succeed in this challenging and rewarding field.
