Niagara University’s master’s degree program in school psychology is founded on a commitment to developing practitioners and leaders in the field of school psychology who, in the Vincentian tradition, seek to individually and systematically foster human growth and development, spirituality, well-being, and emotional stability within culturally diverse contexts.
Students are mentored by highly credentialed faculty in small class sizes that facilitate individualized attention and often lead to research and conference participation.
Graduates demonstrate qualities of outstanding reflective practitioners, such as the dispositions of caring and respect, open-mindedness, and a commitment to equity and social justice.
Completion of this 63 credit-hour graduate program provides candidates with an M.S. and advanced certification in school psychology. Graduates are eligible for provisional certification as a school psychologist by New York state and qualified to apply for national certification (NCSP). Candidates will demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions consistent with the training and ethical standards as set forth by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).
Applications will be reviewed starting in February and interviews will be conducted shortly after. Please have all application materials submitted in order to complete the application in time.
