School Psychology

Welcome to the Baylor School Psychology Program

School psychology provides a stable career with exceptional growth opportunities and good health and retirement benefits. Demand for school psychologists is very strong and school psychology is #1 on the list of best social service jobs published by U. S. News & World Report.

The purpose of the Baylor School Psychology program is to prepare individuals to practice psychology in school-based settings. Our programs prepare individuals to provide direct and indirect educational, behavioral, and mental health services to students, their families, their teachers, and other professionals to create supportive learning and social environments. Our program’s balance of clinical experience and rigorous scholarship allows graduates to be skilled in evidence-based interventions, assessment, consultation, research, and evaluation. Graduates are eligible to earn the licensed specialist in school psychology (LSSP) credential in Texas, or the equivalent credential in other states.
