Clinical Child and School Psychology at SIUE
In SIUE's School of Education, Health and Human Behavior, the clinical child and school psychology program within the Department of Psychology is comprised of two separate tracks: the clinical child psychology track and the school psychology track. Students in the clinical child track are trained to work in organizations serving children, adolescents, and families. Graduates may work in community mental health agencies, hospitals and residential treatment centers. Students in the school psychology track proceed after graduation into the specialist degree program to be eligible for certification as school psychologists in Illinois.
Degrees Available at SIUE

The job prospects for students who enroll in and complete the requirements for the specialist degree program in school psychology are excellent due to a nationwide shortage of school psychologists. Students in the clinical child track have a strong track record of getting accepted into doctoral programs. Those who decide to conclude their education at the master’s level find employment in a variety of clinical and community agencies.
