Program Description

The Department of Psychology, Sociology, & Social Work at West Texas A&M University offers a graduate degree program at the Specialist level that provides training in school psychology. The program is designed to meet both the requirement for state licensure* (L.S.S.P.) and national certification (N.C.S.P.). Graduates of the program will be prepared for employment as school psychologists in public schools or other related organizations and agencies.

​The program is designed to be accessible to working students and all classes will be offered on nights and/or weekends. Some classes will also contain web-based components of training. Students may opt to complete the program on either a full-time (three or four classes per semester) basis, with the degree completed in 3-4 years, or part-time (one or two classes per semester) basis, with the degree completed in 5-6 years.

If you want to help kids and families, this is the way to do it!
