The School Psychology MA/CAGS Program at William James College offers a competency-based curriculum paired with structured, closely supervised field experiences that provides graduates with the strongest foundation for their careers. We offer a unique learning environment with a focus on the development of the personal and professional self and an orientation towards social responsibility. Our students receive unparalleled support and attention from experienced faculty mentors. Full-time students complete the program in 3 years, receiving a Master of Arts after earning 30 credits, and continuing on to earn a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in the final two years.
A school psychologist’s day is never boring. We have many different responsibilities, including assessment, consultation, and counseling. We get to take care of the whole system by shaping school climate and prevention efforts, and also respond to individual student, family, and teacher needs. We really get a broad range of experiences, and our services are in demand. I think that makes for a dynamic, rewarding, and lasting career.
