The bilingual professional diploma program (Bi.P.D.) in School Psychology prepares students to work as practicing school psychologists and leads to NYS certification. The program is fully approved by the National Association of School Psychologists.
The Bi.P.D. program offers training to prepare school psychologists who are bilingual with a specialty in working with children and families of limited English proficiency. The Bilingual School Psychology program leads to a school psychology certificate with a bilingual extension. Currently, the Bilingual P.D. program offers a multilingual specialization that includes a diversity of language backgrounds.
The program builds on an undergraduate foundation in psychology, including a minimum of 66 graduate credits, and requires a one-year supervised internship.
