The school psychology specialization will prepare you to be an advocate for school-age children and adolescents, stressing respect for individual differences, collaborative problem solving, and empirically-based interventions. Upon graduation, learners are prepared to apply a systems-based approach to address the social, emotional, academic, behavioral, and cognitive well-being of students. Graduates of this program are typically employed by public school districts, but may also seek employment with community agencies, in specialized school settings, or in education cooperatives.

Check Your State Licensure Requirements. The ability to practice as a professional psychologist—independently and without supervision—is regulated in all states. Kingston University does not guarantee licensure. If you intend to seek licensure or certification, check the program requirements for licensure or certification in your home state. State regulations vary regarding course requirements for professional licensure.
