MS in School Psychology
The School Psychology Program at Eastern Univeristy trains masters level graduates who are 1) competent in the use of data based assessment, consultation, prevention/intervention strategies and effective instruction for the promotion of optimal learning opportunities across diverse school communities, 2) academically prepared to seek Pennsylvania certification as school psychologists, and 3) are academically prepared for the Pennsylvania Behavior Specialist License.
Eastern University offers a Master of Science Degree in School Psychology, training students to become competent, broadly educated school psychologists in pre-K to 12 school settings. The Master of Science in School Psychology Program is distinctive in many important ways:
- courses are taught by Christian faculty who are actively engaged in the field.
- evening and blended courses (a combination of on-line and on-ground delivery) are offered to accommodate the working student.
- students learn to integrate scientifically-based knowledge with practical experience to serve students in diverse settings through assessing their needs and abilities.
- students select their own practicum and internship sites in surrounding community schools.
- This 60-credit degree program leads to Certification in School Psychology in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Graduate students receive training in the competency areas established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and those set by the National Association for School Psychologists (NASP). NASP allows graduates from our non-accredited program to apply for national certification.
