Psychology of Bilingual Students, M.S.E.
Students who are admitted to the doctoral program in school psychology, the professional diploma program in school psychology or to the professional diploma program in bilingual school psychology, and who do not have a relevant master’s degree, must complete a master’s degree (M.S.E.) while matriculated in their programs in order to be eligible for permanent professional New York state certification as a school psychologist or school psychologist with a bilingual extension.
These M.S.E. programs are designed to provide specialized studies in areas that complement the practice of school psychology. These are “captured” programs that overlap with the school psychology professional diploma and doctoral programs.
Note: These master’s degree programs or specialization areas do not in and of themselves lead to eligibility as a school psychologist or bilingual school psychologist. Students must complete the PD, Bilingual PD, or PhD in school psychology to meet New York state’s requirements for eligibility as a certified school psychologist.
To complete the MSEs, students must
- complete the prescribed program of study, including the four courses (12 credits) that do not overlap with the PD or bilingual PD programs prior to or concurrently with completing the PD or PhD;
- maintain a minimum overall graduate grade point average of 3.25 (B or better); and
- complete an end-of-program comprehensive assessment.
Admission to one of these three M.S.E. programs is limited to students already admitted to the PD in school psychology, the bilingual PD in school psychology, or the Ph.D. in school psychology. Admission to and enrollment in one of these programs is sufficient for admission to a master’s program.
Applicants do not need to be bilingual for admission to the M.S.E. in the psychology of bilingual students.
Students in the bilingual PD in school psychology who lack a master’s degree must complete the master’s in the psychology of bilingual students in order to be eligible for the New York state bilingual extension..
To apply, students need to complete an interprogram application form, which is available from the division or deans’ offices.
