Program Overview

Welcome to UW-Stout!

With both psychology and education backgrounds, school psychologists collaborate with educators, parents and other professionals to ensure that children learn in safe, healthy and supportive environments. University of Wisconsin-Stout's M.S. and Ed.S. degrees in School Psychology emphasize academic preparation as well as hands on clinical experience. The first 30 credits of the program leads to a Master’s degree. Thereafter, students pursue the Educational Specialist degree which is conferred following the third year of the program, during which students complete a fulltime, site-based internship.

The school psychology program at UW-Stout offers an excellent, comprehensive core curriculum that prepares students for successful careers in school psychology, with an emphasis on experiential learning. This process begins in the first semester, and by the end of their fourth semester, students will have completed both school-based and clinic-based practicums. With strong ties to the school counseling program, our students may opt to apply for a dual program in school counseling and school psychology, which also includes a counseling internship experience.

UW-Stout’s program emphasizes academic preparation in psychometrics, assessment, child development, psycho-educational disabilities and learning. Our faculty has additional expertise in evidence-based best practices, including Response to Intervention (RtI), autism and developmental disabilities, as well as functional behavioral assessment (FBA) and function-based interventions (FBI).

You are invited to search this site, and please contact us if you have any questions, or an interest in learning more about our program (see faculty link for contact information). We are excited to work with students who are driven to prepare for a future as school psychologists, solving real world problems and leading the way to maximize learning for all children!
