New Accreditations for Marist's Social and Behavioral Sciences Graduate Programs

School Psychology and Teacher Education Programs Receive New Approvals

Marist's School of Social and Behavioral Sciences recently received accreditation and approval for three graduate degree programs: the Master of Arts in School Psychology, the Master of Education, and the Master of Arts in Educational Psychology. 

The MA in School Psychology program is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), and prepares students to work as practicing school psychologists. The program also leads to New York State certification and eligibility for National Certification as a School Psychologist (NCSP).

The Master of Education program (initial teacher certification) and the Master of Arts in Educational Psychology program (professional certification) are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs at Marist. However, the accreditation does not include individual education courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for professional development, re-licensure, or other purposes.

To learn more about these programs, their student learning outcomes, faculty, curriculum, and admission requirements, visit each program's website by clicking the links above. Please contact Marist's graduate admission office if you have questions or would like additional information.
