Enhance the Mental Health of Our Youth
Findlay’s online Doctor of Education in School Psychology is one of the only school psychology programs in the Midwest that is offered online. Our program prepares you to enhance the mental health and learning of all children and youth.
“The mental health of our youth is a top priority for schools but there aren’t enough individuals who have the training needed to be a school psychologist,” explains Dr. Julie McIntosh, dean of the College of Education at Findlay. “Our program will help fill that need, especially for the schools in our region.”
Our accredited online program can be completed in four years – or less if you already hold a school psychologist license.
