About

The Winthrop University School Psychology Program is a three-year, full-time graduate training sequence leading to the Specialist in School Psychology (SSP) degree. Although an interim Master of Science (MS) degree is awarded at the end of the second year, students admitted to the program are expected to complete the full three-year training program. 

Overview

The Winthrop School Psychology Program is primarily designed to prepare practitioners who are competent to provide a full range of school psychological services including consultation, behavioral intervention, psychoeducational assessment, research, program planning/evaluation and counseling. 

Students are prepared to work with diverse clients from infancy to young adulthood, including those with low-incidence disabilities, and with families, teachers and others in the schools and community. Opportunities for working under close supervision in rural, suburban and urban settings are afforded students in the program. Although some of the School Psychology graduates subsequently pursue doctoral studies, the primary purpose of the program is the preparation of well-rounded professionals for work in public schools and related settings.
