I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into the phd program at UNLV? How does the program rate? Are there many funding opportunities? Any idea what their acceptance rate is? TIA.
I think the APA only accredits school psych programs when they are combined school/clinical or school/counseling programs.Hi, it doesn't look like their school psychology program is APA accredited, and it's more of an Ed Psych degree with School Psych track. This would probably not lead to licensure as a psychologist, at least not easily, and these kinds of programs might be more intended as preparation for academic careers. If you want to become a school psychologist, you can do an Ed.S. (3-year degree) at a NASP-approved program. UNLV has one.
For APA-accredited programs in Clinical/Counseling/School Psych, you should be able to find information on their website about outcomes in terms of internship match rates, % of graduates who become licensed, maybe some info about funding.
