School Psychology, Psy.S.
The school psychology program prepares graduate students to work as professional practitioners to help children and youth succeed academically, socially and behaviorally. Our program was developed in response to the state and national critical shortage of school psychologist and the increased public attention being paid to the important role that school psychologist play in addressing daunting challenges such as school violence, academic achievement of diverse students, etc.
The School Psychology Program consists of 79 credit hours that typically span over three years of coursework (including practica) and a full-time, one year internship. The curriculum is designed to meet the current educational requirements for the Florida DOE certification specialization in school psychology (Rule 6A-04311) and for licensure in school psychology under Chapter 490, Florida Statues. Students benefit from the expertise of full-time faculty whose primary interests are in the field of school psychology, 30 other full-time faculty members that include nationally renowned professionals, and several core part-time and adjunct faculty that work as practitioners or administrators in the schools. Students also enjoy the benefits of a diverse student body, hands on training and research opportunities in a variety of areas.
