Graduate Degrees Offered

School Psychology

The School Psychology Program offers an American Psychological Association-accredited /National Association of School Psychology approved 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 by the Texas State Board of Examiners of 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 eligible for licensure as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists , and towards credentialing as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. 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.

Both programs are grounded in a feminist multicultural philosophy and pedagogy and have a focus on developing practitioners with a strong understanding of individuals within their gendered and sociocultural contexts. Social justice and advocacy are highly valued and practiced. Graduates of the program are expected to embrace strong multicultural values, and to be conversant with and competent in the diversity-sensitive applications of theory, practice, research, and other professional functions.

The programs are situated within the unique context of TWU, focusing primarily on the educational advancement of women, and creates an atmosphere that is inclusive, supportive, and flexible, while maintaining strong academic rigor. The programmatic goals are to create a climate that challenges without competition, promotes professionalism while minimizing the power hierarchy, and incorporates student participation at high levels. The program faculty makes a concerted effort to attend to students’ training needs within a contextual framework and to create an environment in which collaboration, self-direction, community, and respect for individual differences are promoted. Students and faculty make every effort to maintain open communication and clear expectations.

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.

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) or Professional Counselors (LPC).
