Become a School Psychologist

Gonzaga’s Psy.D. in School Psychology program is a doctorate level degree that prepares you to become a licensed-eligible psychologist.

Our curriculum focuses on the psychologist as a ‘scientist-practitioner’ and educates and trains you to apply the principles of psychology and education to support school-wide academic and emotional programs.

Upon graduation, you will become a licensed-eligible psychologist with the credentials to work in the following area:

  • Pre-K-12 Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Residential Facilities
  • Higher Education
  • And many others

Our graduates will also have the education and training to gain licensure for private practice.

Depending on your level of education, we offer 2 pathways to earn your Psy.D. in School Psychology.



Our program is aligned with the American Psychological Association’s (APA) accreditation requirements and full accreditation is expected in 2026, when our first cohort is scheduled to graduate.
