Welcome to Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology!














Our department offers three distinct program areas: educational, school, and counseling psychology.  The specialist and doctoral programs in counseling and school psychology lead to certification and/or licensure. The PhD program in Counseling Psychology is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association.  The accreditation status of the PhD program in School Psychology by APA's Commission on Accreditation is accredited, on probation, effective December 16, 2012.  The programs in educational psychology provide a background in the applications of psychology to education that lead to positions in academia and research facilities. The counseling psychology and the educational psychology programs were ranked 9th and 10th, respectively, for the productivity of their faculty in 2007. We invite you to learn more about our programs by selecting one of the links on the left.
