The goal is to prepare psychologists with high levels of ethical and professional competencies to provide sound educational and psychological services in the school and other educational settings.
This 60-credit specialist-level program provides the skills necessary for the professional preparation of school psychologists. It meets the academic and internship requirements for New York State Certification in School Psychology and is approved as a training institution in School Psychology by the New York State Department of Education and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). The program leads to a Provisional Certificate in School Psychology and a degree of Master of Science in Education. It can be completed in three years of full-time study, including a one-year internship, or in four years on a part-time basis, with three years of part-time study and a final year of full-time internship.
Furthermore, candidates may enroll in either a Bilingual or Multicultural Specialization. The Bilingual Specialization leads to a Bilingual Extension (provided by the New York State Education Department to bilingual candidates meeting the states’ bilingual requirements). The Multicultural Specialization is for non-bilingual students who wish to obtain additional expertise in working with students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Both specializations require additional coursework (6 additional credits) and a special internship experience.
