School Psychology (M.S.E., Ed.S.)
Create positive environments and make a difference in the lives of children with a degree in school psychology.
The purpose of our NASP- and NCATE-approved program is to train you to assist educators and parents in the most contemporary problem-solving methods to meet the educational and mental health needs of children and youth in schools. Our program prepares you to use intervention-based consultation and assessment approaches in the specialist-level training. Couple that with your culminating experience in the program — a hands-on internship — and you are equipped to make a dramatic impact in your immediate practice.
To receive your license, you are required to complete both the master's degree as well as the specialist-level training.
