The School Psychology Ph.D. Program at the University of Montana is dedicated to training psychologists in the scientist-practitioner model; understanding of empirical research and how theory influences the clinician’s best practice in service delivery. Students in the program obtain extensive background knowledge in psychology through a variety of coursework, providing them with foundational knowledge in human behavior and practical exposure to evidence-based interventions.
We seek students who are interested in areas of research related to those of our faculty.
We seek students with a high level of dedication, outstanding intellectual skills, and excellent interpersonal skills.
Our students work collaboratively with their faculty mentors to develop, design, and conduct an empirical study, and report the findings.
Faculty mentors typically chair their students’ thesis and dissertation committees, encourage personal growth, and help prepare students for training and internship.
Our students are free to work with other faculty as interests develop.
