The Psychology Department offers a M.S. degree in Applied Psychology (Clinical/Counseling) and a Specialist in School Psychology degree (S.S.P.). Students in School Psychology earn a Master of Science (M.S.) degree en route to the S.S.P. degree; the School Psychology Option does not offer a terminal M.S. degree. S.S.P. graduates typically go on to become school psychologists and earn LPES licensure in South Carolina. M.S. (clinical/counseling) graduates are eligible to be licensed as LPC’s in South Carolina, and they are employable in a variety of settings.
