Counseling and School Psychology

The Counseling and School Psychology Department prepares individuals to support learning and social development in academic environments. We offer two unique graduate programs that lead to careers as school counselors or school psychologists. With an experienced faculty, diverse student-body, customizable graduation plans, and convenient, evening hours, our department has trained practitioners in the latest knowledge and techniques since 1968.

The Counseling and School Psychology Advantage  

  • Each of our programs is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The School Psychology program is accredited by the National Association of School Psychologistslink.
  • Attend classes at two convenient locations—the Wyman Education Building in the UWRF main campus and the Hudson Center in Hudson, Wis. Both are only a 20 to 30 minute drive from downtown St. Paul, Minn.
  • Class sizes are small, giving students the opportunity to connect and engage with faculty and staff.
  • In 2014, 93 percent of counseling graduates found work in the field. Meanwhile, 100 percent of school psychology interns have found employment since 2002.

 

News and Events

  • The next department open house for prospective students will be held in the 2015 fall semester (date and time TBD). The open house will include interactions with current students and alumni, a question and answer session with faculty, and tours of program facilities and resources. Prospective applicants are highly encouraged to attend. For additional details, contact Mark Gillen, department chair.
