The graduate program requirements are composed of three primary areas: academic coursework, the thesis, and the internship.
Academic coursework combines a careful balance of content knowledge and application of knowledge in the field. Students take core courses in psychology and education that cover content in areas relevant to school psychology. Concurrently, students use the core knowledge in the practicum, which is tailored to fit the current skills each student possesses.
From these experiences, the student will have assembled a portfolio of projects undertaken which demonstrates competency in content application. The internship is the culminating experience for the student. Under site and university-based supervision, the student continues to develop skills as a competent school psychologist.
Throughout the three years in the program, the student will develop expertise in various areas, which stimulate the formation and completion of the thesis project.
