This program is designed so you can earn your MS in School Psychology (30 credits) at Barry University and then seamlessly move into the Specialist in School Psychology (SSP) program (41 credits).


If you already have a master's degree in a related field (such as mental health counseling or special education), you may be accepted directly into the specialist program. Your advisor will work with you to develop a customized course sequence.

A Specialist in School Psychology (SSP) degree at Barry University will give you the educational requirements and expertise to become credentialed as a school psychologist and work with individuals from birth to age 21. Some of our students enter the program immediately after their undergraduate studies, while others are current teachers or mental health professionals looking for a career change.


Most school psychologists work in a public school setting, and may be assigned to several schools. This career provides a great deal of variety on a daily basis. Activities include providing psychological evaluations, conducting individual and group counseling sessions with children, and measuring the success of programs. School Psychologists also develop academic and behavioral interventions for classrooms and in times of crisis.
