Program of Study

RIC's School Psychology Program is 3-year, entry-level professional training program designed to prepare school psychologists to be proficient in delivering psychological and psychoeducational services to children and youth in school settings. The program emphasizes a reflective problem-solving approach to professional practice. The combined Master of Arts/Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (M.A./C.A.G.S.) plan of study meets the standards for the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), which is a constituent of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The program also satisfies credentialing requirements for the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE). The requirements for each of the three phases of the program are shown below. The program must be completed within six years. Part-time candidates are allowed for year one, but full-time time attendance is required for Years 2 and 3.
