School and Counselling Psychology

This two-year full-time thesis program integrates research and practice, and is unique across Canada in providing training in both school psychology and counselling psychology.  The program prepares future counsellors and psychologists who provide direct (assessment, intervention) and indirect (consultative, collaborative, advocacy) psychological services to children, youth, young adults, their families, school personnel, and the community working as members of interdisciplinary teams in various  academic, research, school, mental health, government, community agency, and private practice settings.

Special Education or Measurement and Evaluation

This research intensive program is designed to prepare practitioners and researchers with specialization in either Special Education or Measurement & Evaluation. Students can enroll in the thesis route  or course-based route. Program graduates in the special education stream are prepared to assume leadership or consultative positions in schools/school divisions, government agencies, businesses or post-secondary institutions. Program graduates in the Measurement & Evaluation stream may obtain employment as data analysts, research scientists, test developers, research consultants, classroom and large-scale assessment specialists, certification and credentialing professionals, and psychometricians at research and testing organizations. Graduates of the program typically pursue careers as consultants, administrators, program designers/evaluators, or undertake further graduate work.
