National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) Research Reports
Each year the Graduate Education Committee of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) administers the National School Psychology Program Database Survey. Data regarding the status of graduate education in school psychology have been collected annually for both specialist and doctoral programs since 2010. This report for the 2016–2017 academic year summarizes data collected from the directors of all known school psychology programs and provides estimates regarding selected outcomes for those programs. During the 2016–2017 academic year, an estimated 10,209 students (including interns) were enrolled in school psychology programs. Further, an estimated 3,118 first-year students were enrolled, and an estimated 2,796 students (2,210 specialist-level and 586 doctoral-level) graduated from school psychology programs. Approximately 94% of specialist-level program graduates work in schools. In contrast, approximately 47% of doctoral-level program graduates work in schools, while 38% work as faculty members within a university setting. Additional data include information regarding credit hour requirements, financial support, enrollment, internship placement, and student outcomes.
