Research Focus

School Psychology

Specialist in School Psychology (SSP) What is an SSP Degree?

The program will teach you to apply the scientist-practitioner model to school psychology. You will conduct empirical research. This will make you more marketable for employment or doctoral studies, as you'll have the skill to analyze data and assess programs within schools. Your quantitative, empirical study will result in a publishable paper, enabling you to showcase your work.

Our students regularly submit their research studies to national forums, and are frequently asked to present their findings at conferences. We feel that this is such an excellent opportunity for our students that we usually cover travel costs associated with attending the conferences to make a presentation.

Becoming adept at conducting your own research will strengthen your ability to make effective use of others' research. This will enable you to more easily stay up-to-date with the current trends and constant changes in the field long after you graduate.
