The Combined Credential Program

This combined credential program is offered by the Clinical Child/School Psychology faculty.

The school psychologist is a clinical child psychologist who functions within the school organization. The school psychologist provides consultation and services for enhancement of the cognitive, social and emotional development of children and adolescents within the school environment; provides programs for the development of the staff; has responsibility for the prevention, assessment, and remediation of the behavioral and learning difficulties of children; and often becomes the primary resource for the emotionally troubled children and their parents. The school psychologist serves the schools as the expert in psycho-educational measurement, program evaluation, and research.

School Psychology Internship

This program prepares students to undertake a full-time (1200-hour) Internship in School Psychology, as required by the National Association of School Psychologists and, as of July, 1996, by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing of the State of California.

Note: that the Internship Credential would serve to qualify a student for internship status, and thus would have to be earned prior to the actual internship year itself.
