Our M.S.Ed. in Child Psychology graduate program will prepare you to pursue a rewarding
career as an educational advocate for children. This 30-credit program includes curriculum to enhance paraprofessional mental health services provided to children in community
and school settings. While our Child Psychology master's degree does not lead to the
professional practice of school psychology, other options to advance your career are
available to you through this program.
The first 30 credits of our doctoral programs consist of the M.S.Ed. Child Psychology
curriculum. Depending on eligibility, applicants who are accepted into one of these
doctoral programs, who have completed the M.S.Ed. Child Psychology program at Duquesne,
and who are within the Statute of Limitations, may be able to have the 30 credits
from their M.S.Ed. Child Psychology program transferred to their doctoral degree.
Our M.S.Ed. in Child Psychology program will prepare you to pursue a rewarding career
as an educational advocate for children and can be a pathway to eligibility for Autism
Endorsement, the Behavior Specialist Licensure, or application to doctoral studies
in our School Psychology programs.
