Grand Valley State University's School Psychology graduate program, leading students to earn both a Masters of Science degree (M.S.) and a Specialist in School Psychology degree (Psy.S.), offers students extensive training through coursework, practicum, and research experiences in the assessment, prevention, and intervention of academic, social, and mental health problems that affect a wide range of students.

The program is aligned with the standards of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) with an emphasis on evidence based practices. Upon completion of the 3-year program, students are eligible to apply for licensure as a school psychologist.  

  • Innovative. The program offers a comprehensive, progressive curriculum designed to create leaders and innovators in the field of education. 
  • Collaborative. The School Psychology graduate program is connected to state projects, field experiences, and national standards in which our students participate through high-quality and meaningful experiences.
  • In-demand.  There is a critical shortage at both the state and national level for psychologists of all disciplines, with faster than average job growth; and school psychologist is listed on the "100 Best Jobs" report by U.S. News.
