Within the Administration and Supervision degrees, students in the department can pursue a General Administration degree or specialize in Urban or Catholic/Nonpublic School Education.

Counseling and School Psychology
Counseling and School Psychology programs are based on the scientist-practitioner model and produce professionals who are able to integrate theories of counseling, human development, career counseling, assessment, group counseling, family counseling, multicultural counseling, developmental disorders, research methods, program development and evaluation, and ethics into their work. Programs are available at the master’s level in Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling, at the professional diploma level in School Psychology and Bilingual School Psychology, and at the doctoral level in Counseling Psychology and School Psychology.

Studying in New York City
As one of the most diverse cities in the world, New York gives Fordham GSE students opportunities to work with many different populations in schools, districts, hospitals, clinics, community organizations, and other settings.

Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus is located in the middle of it all. With Broadway a block to the east and Central Park not much farther, students can take full advantage of all the wonderful things New York City has to offer.
