School Psychology

Departmental Website


The School Psychology program is designed to prepare individuals to function in a school setting and in a role that requires interest in the educational and personal adjustment of children and adolescents. It is anticipated the graduate students will develop skills in assessment, therapeutic techniques, educational remediation, consultation, program development, and staff training and research.

Although the primary purpose of the program is to certify school psychologists in the State of Illinois, many current graduates migrate to other states where they also qualify for state certification. An Illinois school psychologist must complete a full year of internship in an approved public school setting.
