School Psychology

Our primary purpose is to train students to be outstanding, ethical, and multiculturally competent scientist-practitioners who promote psychology as a profession and science for the betterment of the human condition. 

As such, the program places high emphasis on instilling attitudes and skills necessary to become critical consumers of research, active disseminators of research, and valuable contributors to the scientific foundations of the field.  In practice, this means that students learn to define problems clearly within a systemic and ecological context; utilize theory and research to analyze problems systematically; select objective and replicable methods to test hypotheses using procedures appropriate for the problem and acceptable to the consumer; implement these procedures with fidelity, monitoring for potentially adverse effects; and empirically evaluate the validity of the outcomes. 

The philosophy of the School Psychology Program is articulated through Program Goals and Objectives, curriculum, and applied training experiences, which are sequenced in accordance with a developmental model of training.
