The State Board of Education’s standards for certification of school psychologists require that the candidate complete an approved master’s degree program in psychology that has been developed in concert with school and professional organizations. (Note: candidates who have already received a master’s degree in a related field are not required to earn a second master’s, but must complete all requirements or their equivalent.)
