What will I learn?

The emphasis of the School Psychology Program is to prepare school psychologists who are effective teacher, parent, and school consultants. Along with consultation, graduate students are trained to provide effective interventions. The program also emphasizes a pupil services model which addresses the educational and mental health needs of all children, from early childhood through high school. The school psychology knowledge base includes areas of professional school psychology, educational psychology, psychological foundations, educational foundations, and mental health. To provide psychological services in educational settings, graduates of the School Psychology Program must also have considerable knowledge of curriculum, special education, and pupil services.

The Master of Science in Education in school psychology is awarded after the first year of study. To practice as a licensed school psychologist, students must go on to complete the Educational Specialist degree in school psychology. UWL offers both degrees through the School Psychology Program.
