Are you willing to study hard for a career? Would you take board exams to become certified? Do you like working with school children and have a genuine interest in making their lives better? Are you sociable, compassionate, organized and trustworthy? If yes, then look no further. As a school psychologist may be right for you!
School psychologists design and implement interventions for a wide range of difficulties that many children may face. The demand for school psychologists is expected to increase, as they make a valuable contribution to the lives of children. To become a school psychologist, you will need a bachelor’s degree in psychology followed by a master’s degree, or equivalent. Most school psychologists will then achieve an advanced degree and either certification or licensure to work.
