Masters in School Psychology

School psychology is a subcategory of psychology that deals with helping students solve social, academic and personal problems. After earning an educational specialist degree, most states will hire someone to fill school psychology positions, though a Masters in School Psychology is sufficient in some areas as well. You may need to continue on after the two-year master’s program and earn your doctorate degree. Earning an Ed.S. usually takes three years, with the third year being comprised solely of an internship. Accredited programs will be recognized by the American Psychological Association (APA), an attribute you must look for to obtain a quality education.

Since laws for becoming licensed vary by state, it is important that you find out the requirements in your area. If you want a more convenient way to earn your education and prepare to become a licensed school psychologist, you can discover a number of School Psychology Master’s Programs online. This way, you complete your degree at your own pace from the comfort of your own home. Ideal for students who have full schedules during the day, flexible internet courses are just are credible as brick-and-mortar institutions. As long as you identify a program that is sponsored by an accredited university, you will prepare yourself to become a professional in the field.

School psychologists work within educational environments and visit with students in groups and on an individual basis. They work with teachers, students and their parents to create encouraging learning environments. Evaluations are conducted by school psychologists to improve social and academic skills of students. By working at the administrative level within a school district, these professionals work to improve the effectiveness of academia and prevent behavioral problems by introducing helpful school programs.
