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 Psychologists. The Counseling Program is CACREP accredited.
  • 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.
  • 91% of counseling graduates were employed as school counselors within 9 months of graduation since spring of 2015.
  • 100% of school psychology interns have found employment since 2002.

 

News and Events

  • The Counseling and School Psychology programs are primarily face-to-face programs, designed with experiential learning and practical application of skills in mind. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our courses to a mostly online format with some hybrid options for skills practice until it is safe to resume normal programming. You can find out more about UWRF's response to COVID-19 here:  https://www.uwrf.edu/Falcons-Forward/Index.cfm or please contact Dr. Caroline Baker, Department Chair, with questions: caroline.baker@uwrf.edu 
  • We welcome communication about interest in either program via email with Dr. Caroline Baker, Department Chair (caroline.baker@uwrf.edu).
  • Online open houses may also occur for each program. You can find specific scheduling information on each program's website.
