The program emphasizes training that applies a scientist-practitioner model to maximize the educational and social-emotional development of children in urban settings, especially children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Through coursework and field experiences, the program attempts to provide students with a sensitivity and understanding of the special needs of those whose cultural backgrounds and/or language skills make their quality of education a particular challenge.
The School Psychology doctoral program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association, approved by the National Association of School Psychologists, and registered with the New York State Department of Education for purposes of school psychology certification and professional licensing in psychology.
