About

The combined Psychology ( School Psychology ) program at Middle Tennessee State University is field-based with a research-based thesis required.

Overview

The National Association of School Psychologists first approved the program in 1991, and graduates are eligible for national certification until the next review cycle in approximately 2020. 

The Psychology ( School Psychology ) program at Middle Tennessee State University also seeks to prepare Ed.S.-level school psychologists for licensure by the Tennessee Board of Education. The school psychologist must be prepared to understand and deal with the child's three major social systems: society in general, the family situation, and the school system. MTSU uses a psychosocial model and promotes a multicultural perspective. 

Students also get training in assessment and intervention with school pupils who have dyslexia, through the Center for the Study and Treatment of Dyslexia and neighboring education districts. Graduate and research assistantships are among financial aid possibilities.

Careers

MTSU graduates are employed in education as either school psychologists or behavioral analysts. A school psychologist may work in a variety of different environments including public schools, clinics and hospitals, private schools, school health clinics, universities, community agencies, and in private practice.
