As the first American Psychological Association-accredited doctoral school psychology program, the School Psychology doctoral program at the University of Texas at Austin has a long history of scientist-practitioner training, scholarly contributions to research, and academic and professional leadership.
Consistent with the broad and general health service psychology specialty of school psychology, the program prepares students to be scientist-practitioners capable of addressing the significant and complex problems and issues facing children, youth, and their caretakers in a variety of settings and contexts.
As a program we strive to advance equity in our admission, retention, and graduation of diverse students; through our scholarship, we create opportunities for students to engage in research with diverse and marginalized populations; through training in evidence-based and culturally-responsive practice, we promote the health and resilience of youth and their systems over time.

Child psychology is a great career path for those interested in working with children in schools, clinics, hospitals, and early childhood centers.
