Description This blended degree is designed for individuals who are intending to work as school psychologists or are interested in applied psychology in school or community settings. The mission of the program is to prepare school psychologists to be contributors and effective collaborators in enhancing learning and mental health outcomes for all individuals within a wide variety of settings. Core content of the program covers the topic areas of psychological foundations, assessment, intervention, consultation, school psychology practice and development, and statistics and research methods. As a course-based program, student learning is more focused on clinical practice, so core content areas are complemented by a 1,200-hour internship in school and/or community settings. Weekly classes are offered in the evenings (5:30-8:30 pm MST) to accommodate individuals who work during the day. Theory-based courses are offered online, and on-campus residencies are required during the summer term of each year in the program.
