Doctoral (Ph.D.) and masters (Ed.M.) degree programs in School Psychology are available at Teachers College. Our doctoral program is fully accredited by APA and NASP and our Ed.M. program is fully accredited by NASP. Most students follow the general curriculum of their degree program; however, with some additional coursework, students in either program can develop competence in working with the Deaf and the Hearing Impaired (See Appendix A in the student handbook). In addition, students in the Ed.M. program can elect to obtain the bilingual extension, which is approved by the New York State Department of Education. (For further information see Appendix B in the student handbook.
In addition to the Ph.D., the Program in School Psychology also has a New York State Department of Education registered Ed.D. option. However, that degree is not accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and the program has not accepted applications or admitted students to the Ed.D. program in several years.
