Doctor of Philosophy in School Psychology
The Doctor of Philosophy in school psychology was authorized by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in 2009. The program is exclusively affiliated with the SFA Charter School Psychology Internship Program, which has received American Psychological Association accreditation.
There are two options for this program:
- Doctor of Philosophy post-bachelor’s — three years of coursework and a one-year, full-time internship (for individuals with a bachelor's degree or with a master's degree in a field other than psychology)
- Doctor of Philosophy post-master’s — two years of coursework and a one-year, full-time internship (for individuals with a master's degree in school, counseling or clinical psychology)
Students interested in a doctoral degree should consider the post-bachelor’s program (note that you can enroll in the doctoral program right after completing your bachelor’s degree).
