Masters in School Psychology

School psychology is a subcategory of psychology that deals with helping students solve social, academic and personal problems.

You may need to continue on after the two-year master’s program and earn your doctorate degree.

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.
