Psychology BS/MBA (3+1 Accelerated Dual Degree)
Saint Rose offers an uncommon opportunity to complete two degrees in just four years: your Psychology bachelor’s degree in in three years and your MBA in one.

Our school psychology graduate program combines a strong interdisciplinary focus with an emphasis on clinical experience.
Over the last several years, 100% of our students have passed the Praxis II School Psychology Exam, which makes them eligible to become a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP), a credential accepted by more than 30 states.
