Graduate Degrees Offered

School Psychology

The School Psychology Program offers an American Psychological Association-accredited Ph.D. degree and a National Association of School Psychologists approved Specialist degree . The School Psychology Program is designed to prepare students in the scientist-practitioner model with emphasis on scientific rigor and problem solving applied to practice in intervention, consultation, assessment, program evaluation, and research. Doctoral students are prepared to assume leadership roles in educational settings, in independent practice, and in supervision. Doctoral graduates qualify for licensure as psychologists and listing in the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology following appropriate internship and postdoctoral experience. Both specialist and doctoral graduates are eligible to take the national school psychology examination, which leads to being credentialed as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, and are eligible for licensure as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists . The School Psychology Program Committee (SPPC) is the governing body for School Psychology Graduate Programs. It develops and enforces the policies in this catalog and all program publications.

Counseling Psychology

The Counseling Psychology program offers an American Psychological Association accredited Ph.D. degree and M. A. degree that provides systematic training within a practitioner-scientist model to prepare students for professional mental health practice in a wide range of settings. The programs are grounded in feminist multicultural philosophy and pedagogy. The programs have particular focus on developing clinicians with a strong understanding of individuals within their gendered and socio-cultural contexts.Graduates of the programs are expected to be conversant with and competent in the diversity-sensitive applications of individual, systemic/family, and integrative theories.

The program holds strongly to principles that undergird the development of more traditional graduate programs in Counseling Psychology including normal growth and development and an emphasis on an individual’s strengths rather than pathology. Emphasis is also placed on the study of the multiple contexts within which human beings grow and develop: the family, the school, the marketplace, and the multiple social settings and groups in the culture. The student is trained to be particularly sensitive to and skilled in human interactions and multicultural issues, as well as growth and change in human systems and the individual in her/his context.

The program expects that students and faculty will be respectful and supportive of all individuals, including, but not limited to clients, staff, peers, and others who are different from themselves in terms of age, gender, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, faith and no faith, spirituality, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status. It is expected that students and faculty will work to create a climate of safety and trust for all concerned.

This particular program’s philosophy, curriculum, faculty, and students attempt to create an atmosphere that is supportive, open, and flexible. The goal is to create a program that challenges without creating competition, promotes professionalism with a minimum of power hierarchy, incorporates and encourages student participation at high levels, and encompasses important emerging trends in the areas of gender, multiculturalism, and human sexuality, while remaining solidly rooted in the foundations of Counseling Psychology. The program faculty make a concerted effort to attend to students within a contextual framework, recognizing interpersonal, familial, institutional, and socio-cultural realities. Faculty strive to create an inclusive rather than exclusive environment, in which egalitarianism, self-direction, leadership, and respect for individual differences are promoted. Program students and faculty alike attempt to maintain open communication and clarity of expectations to promote mutual understanding and respect.

Applicants should be aware that, as is typical of graduate training in professional psychology, part of one’s development as a psychologist entails personal growth and disclosure in addition to academic learning. As such, students may be expected to share appropriate personal material in various classes and practicum situations. APA guidelines require that students be informed of this requirement.

In summary, the broad programmatic philosophy and training model has four parts:

  1. to train competent, ethical professional psychologists,
  2. to train practitioner-scientists whose practice is informed by science,
  3. to train Counseling Psychologists with specific expertise in multiculturalism and gender/women’s issues, and
  4. to balance an underlying structure that supports excellence in professional training with respect for individual differences and flexibility to accommodate varying student needs in a student body that tends to be mature and experienced.

Doctoral graduates qualify for Licensure as Psychologists and listing in the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology following appropriate internship and postdoctoral experience. Master’s graduates may qualify for licensure as Psychological Associates (LPA), Professional Counselors (LPC), and/or Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT) depending upon specific coursework choices and practicum experiences.
