The graduate program in School Psychology prepares professional school psychologists to work as leaders in applied practice in education and mental health settings.

Both the Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) and doctoral (Ph.D.) programs offer extensive training and fieldwork aimed at producing highly trained practitioners who possess the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to enhance the academic and mental health competence of all children and youth. The School Psychology Program at Kent State University is steeped in history, reflecting Ohio's early position in the development of the specialty, and remains as a national leader in preparing school psychologists.
