Program Information

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.
