Within Northeastern University's MS in Applied Educational Psychology, students enroll in foundational courses in learning, human development, assessment, and diversity. Students also begin their practicum sequence with the pre-practicum, the purpose of which is to provide students with observational experiences and an early opportunity to learn about the school ecology. Following completion of the MS in Applied Educational Psychology, students in good academic standing will enter the CAGS in School Psychology program. Both the MS and CAGS are necessary to obtain licensure as a school psychologist.
Students who are interested in concurrently pursuing early intervention qualification should consider the Early Intervention Graduate Certificate . Please see also the CAGS School Psychology program.
