Our Child, Family and School Psychology (CFSP) program in the Department of Teaching and Learning Sciences will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to help students of all backgrounds and developmental abilities grow and thrive.
Our program is hands-on. Practicum, internships, and research opportunities are available at a wide variety of community placements, including our Counseling and Educational Services Clinic, the Ricks Center for Gifted Education, and the Fisher Early Learning Center. Through real-world practical experience and instruction from our internationally recognized faculty, you will be prepared to solve problems and share decision making to support diverse students, families, schools, and communities.
There is a huge need for school psychologists. U.S. News & World Report ranks school psychologist as the #2 best social services job and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts this profession will grow 20% between 2014 and 2024, equating to 30,500 new jobs.
We offer three degree programs:
Begin your degree path to pursuing doctoral work in our CFSP program.
Pursue national certification and licensure as a school psychologist.
Develop concentrated expertise and pursue licensure as a school psychologist (if you are not already licensed).
