School Psychology Program Overview

The graduate program in School Psychology requires the completion of 72 graduate semester hours, including extensive practicum and internship experiences. The degree awarded at completion of the full program is a Specialist in School Psychology.

The program is fully accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and the District of Columbia Public Schools.

The program generally requires three years to complete. The first year includes a 30-credit sequence of courses in psychology and related areas, demonstration of sign communication competency, and successful completion of comprehensive examinations in three areas (language, cognition, and behavior disorders). Successful completion of these requirements results in a Master of Arts degree in Developmental Psychology.

The post-Masters (or second year) of the program requires an additional 30-semester credit sequence of courses emphasizing school psychological services, additional content courses, extensive practicum/externship experience, and successful completion of a comprehensive examination in the area of psychoeducational assessment.

Advancement to Practicum II is a post-Masters benchmark toward eventual advancement to Internship.
