The School Psychology program is divided into two programs, the Masters of Arts in School Psychology, and the Educational Specialist Degree, each having distinct admissions criteria. Admission to the M.A. program does not guarantee admission to the Ed.S. program. The combination of the MA and EdS program courses satisfies the requirements of the New Jersey Department of Education for the candidate to become a NJ certified School Psychologist .
The Ed.S. degree is concerned with psychological, professional, and related educational courses to develop awareness and skill in interventions, consultations, and assessments for school children. Attainment of the Ed.S. degree requires completion of all courses, as well as the practicum and externship requirements.
