The School Psychology Program at Trinity University provides a distinctive combination of experiences to prepare you for an exciting and rewarding career.

Our courses are taught by professionals who practice school psychology or have done so in the past. The course sequence follows national standards for foundational knowledge and applied practice in school settings. Graduate students participate in discussions, role-playing, group/individual projects and applied research to demonstrate mastery of critical knowledge and skills. 

The graduate assistantships offered through our department and our partner school districts provide real-life opportunities to apply new knowledge and develop skills. In addition, these 24-hour per week positions fund seven hours of student tuition costs each semester and provide a $400 monthly stipend.

Classes are small, operating on a cohort model, meaning each group of students progresses through the curriculum together in a sequential manner. This encourages a real sense of collegiality within each group that has been observed to continue into the careers of our alumni.

Our beautiful campus offers the perfect background for intellectual pursuits. We are privileged to have a wide range of services and state-of-the-art classrooms. Trinity's Coates Library offers an extensive collection of print and digital resources as well as knowledgeable and helpful staff members to assist in locating information. In addition, we are located in a vibrant, culturally-rich city that is large enough to offer every urban amenity, yet still maintain a laid-back, friendly vibe that makes San Antonio very accessible.

The Trinity School Psychology Program and its outstanding graduates are leaders in the professional community. The program celebrates a rich history while looking toward the future. School psychology offers individuals the chance to impact the lives of all children in positive ways ar school, at home and in life.
