What will I learn?

Northeastern University’s Master of Science/Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) in School Psychology is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The overarching purpose of the program is to develop highly competent school psychologists. Some students also choose to specialize in either early intervention or applied behavior analysis. The early intervention training option is designed to prepare school psychologists to work with infants and toddlers and their families in community and related agencies, on interdisciplinary teams, and on the transition to school. The applied behavior analysis training option is designed to prepare school psychologists to address the learning and behavioral needs of children and adolescents with challenging behaviors in school, home, and community settings, including children with autism spectrum disorders.
