School Psychology Minor
The school psychology minor is designed to prepare you for academic, professional, and personal success toward a career as a school psychologist. This minor provides prerequisite coursework typically required for admission to school psychology graduate programs and is a strong complement to programs in psychology, education, human development and family relations, and social work.
What Will I Learn?
You will learn fundamental concepts that will prepare you for graduate training in school psychology, including children’s developmental stages and learning processes, psychological disorders, the role of assessment in assisting children to succeed, and the brain’s role in children’s behavior and learning.
What is Unique About Our Program?
The school psychology minor is not offered at other SUNY colleges. It will introduce you to the school psychology career and prepare you for entry into a school psychology graduate program, whether at SUNY Plattsburgh or elsewhere.
What Are My Career Opportunities?
Opportunities for school psychologists continue to grow and the career was recently
listed as one of the “100 best jobs.”
