Doctoral Degree: School Psychology Concentration

The School Psychology concentration prepares students using an ecologically oriented, scientist-practitioner model.  Students are immersed in faculty supervised, pre-professional activities including course work, delivery of services in school settings, and research.  School Psychology students develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to become leaders in schools and experts in addressing the individual needs of Pre-K through 12th grade youth.  Training is provided to help all School Psychology candidates become competent in responding to the wide range of issues that affect the academic success of today’s youth (e.g., cultural, contextual, educational, familial, behavioral, and emotional).
