UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

School Psychology emphasizes collaboration, culturally-responsive practice, leadership development and data-based decision making. School psychologists work with teachers, school administrators, parents, and other mental health professionals to ensure that every child learns in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. School psychologists understand school systems, effective teaching and successful learning. They help evaluate student and classroom needs and develop systematic interventions when needed.

Fully accredited by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP)link, our program ensures graduates have strong skills in data-based decision making, school interventions, consultation, collaborative problem solving and culturally-responsive services.

Program Highlights 

  • Attend classes in two convenient locations — the main campus in River Falls (30 minutes from St. Paul) and at the Hudson Center (20 minutes from St. Paul).
  • We offer convenient, evening-based courses for students. Classes typically begin at 4 p.m. or later and are often completed in four years. Many students find the structure to be integral to their success, allowing them to maintain daytime employment and/or time for other obligations as needed.
  • Graduates have numerous career opportunities locally, regionally and nationally. One-hundred percent of UWRF program interns have secured positions since 2002.
