About Us: School Psychology Program
SPARC (School Psychology Awareness and Recruitment Committee) is a student-run group designed to raise awareness among our campus and community about school psychology. SPARC members from each class meet monthly with a faculty representative to plan recruitment initiatives and events such as an open house, student panels, School Psychology Awareness Day, and Interview Day.
The demographics of our nation continue to change, and along with
them life in our schools. These complex changes are not limited to
urban and urban rim communities, but significantly impact suburban
communities as well. Active engagement in the life of complex school
systems, with the aim of confronting difficult social problems and
promoting equity and fairness for all in the school community,
presents many challenges to the practice of school psychology.
Academic prerequisites include the following undergraduate coursework: Abnormal psychology; a course in child, adolescent, or lifespan development; and a course in statistics, research methods, or measurement in the social sciences. An undergraduate psychology major satisfies all prerequisite course requirements.
Tufts University also offers advanced degrees in the areas of Biological, Cognitive, Developmental, Experimental, and Social Psychology through the Department of Psychology.
On average, 100% of our graduates are employed as school psychologists within three months of graduating from the program. In any given year, 75% are typically employed at schools in Massachusetts across the k-12 age range.
