Courses & Requirements
The School Psychology program is designed to prepare students for
practice providing comprehensive services in schools. Students
are participating in field-based experiences from the first year.
Over the three years of the program the balance of course
preparation and field experiences shifts, so that students are in
their field sites one day per week the first year, three days per
week their second year, and five days per week their third year.
During their first two years (including summer study) students
complete the course-work needed to prepare them for their practicum
and internship fieldwork. During these two years, course
assignments and seminars draw upon field experiences and offer
opportunities for integrating developing knowledge and skills.
NOTE: Students entering with teaching experience, experience with
children with disabilities, or an undergraduate major in special education or
related field, may, with advisor permission, take one course from the approved
list of courses in Exceptionalities in Learning in lieu of ED142.
