School Psychology, Counseling and Leadership

Helping students goes beyond imparting knowledge in the classroom.

Our Department of School Psychology, Counseling and Leadership will give you the skills you need to work as a school psychologist, school counselor, principal or vice principal, among other positions. Perhaps you have taught in schools and now want to influence children, but in a different capacity, one that takes advantage of your interpersonal or organizational skills. Consider becoming a school psychologist, counselor or administrator. School psychologists and counselors play an important role in schools by providing emotional and academic support, advocating for students, and working to improve the relationships between parents, students and faculty. Our Educational Leadership program will give you the practical skills you need to work in an administrative capacity in a school. Courses cover such areas as educational law, finance, management and ethics. By the time you complete one of our programs, you will be prepared for New York State Certification as a school psychologist, school counselor or school administrator.
