Program overview

The advanced certificate in school psychology is designed for students who are interested in learning aspects of school psychology, but may not want to pursue an advanced degree. The advanced certificate may be completed as a stand-alone program, or courses may be applied later for students who wish to complete a master's degree. Students who complete the MS program in school psychology automatically earn this certificate.

Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.

The advanced certificate in school psychology is awarded to students who have met all the requirements of the MS degree and have completed and defended a thesis or research project. (The master of science degree is awarded after students have completed all course work, an internship, and have passed a portfolio review.) Please refer to the program description for the MS degree in school psychology for information on course work and admission requirements.
