School Psychology
Masters in School Psychology

Uniquely qualified to support both students’ ability to learn and teachers’ ability to educate, school psychologists are important members of virtually every learning environment. The Master of Science (MS) in School Psychology degree program provides learners with the basic training and building blocks to learn how to conduct assessments and interventions, as well as support student’s academic, behavioral and mental health.

Completion of the school psychology master’s degree alone is not intended to adequately prepare learners to be eligible to sit for a licensure or certification exam as a school psychologist. Learners who are interested in pursuing state or national certification as a school psychologist should also complete a Capella EdS in School Psychology or PsyD in School Psychology.*

* It is important to understand all educational and individual requirements for licensing. Capella University cannot guarantee licensure, certification, or endorsement. State regulations vary regarding professional licensure. It is your responsibility to understand and comply with requirements for your state.
