School Psychology Degree Requirements

The University of Hartford’s School Psychology program is an integrated 66-credit program of study leading to the MS degree in School Psychology, with a specialization in Clinical Child Counseling, and a sixth-year certificate, with endorsement for credentialing as a Certified School Psychologist. The MS degree in School Psychology is awarded upon satisfactory completion of a 30-credit planned program of study and successful performance on a comprehensive examination. University endorsement for professional certification as a school psychologist in the State of Connecticut requires the completion of an additional 36 credits of course work and training. At the University of Hartford, following completion of the MS Degree in School Psychology, students complete the additional 36 credits to be recommended for initial certification in school psychology, earning 6 credits for the Internship in School Psychology (the internship is conceptualized as a culminating experience). Following completion of 66 credits, the transcript reflects completion of a Specialist Program in School Psychology.
