Oregonian: UO's school psychologist doctoral program fourth-least-expensive

UO School Psychology Program's Early Literacy Research Team

The University of Oregon's doctoral-level school psychology program is fourth-least-expensive among the nation's top 30 such programs, according to an online rating service cited by the Oregonian in a story this week.

School psychologists help evaluate learning disabilities and determine which students may need special education services.

The online site Best Psychology Degrees ranks various types of psychology programs. For its ranking of school psychology programs, the site looked at doctoral programs that earned top-30 ratings from U.S. News and have school psychology tracks accredited by the American Psychological Association Commission on Accreditation.

The UO program is part of the College of Education's Department of Special Education. It includes teams of graduate students who research topics including childhood literacy and early interventions for children with autism.

Tuition for the program is listed at $7,900.
