Welcome from the Department Chair

Welcome to the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Kansas School of Education. Our department offers masters and doctoral programs in Counseling Psychology, Educational Psychology and Research and School Psychology. Our counseling psychology and school psychology doctoral programs are fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. Our masters program and educational specialist program are fully accredited by the Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC)  and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), respectively.

Our department offers critical knowledge and skills needed in our society today including research design, statistics, educational measurement, program evaluation, educational and psychological assessment, counseling and consultation. We offer online classes, intensive seminars and field experiences with professors who have vibrant contemporary research programs as well as grounded practical experience in the field.

Our students are truly exceptional and challenge each other, and our faculty, as we expand our knowledge in psychology and education with cutting-edge research. Students in our department find supportive cohorts and student organizations that build cohesion and lifelong friendships.

We hope that you will look over all that our department has to offer and find a place where you can achieve your educational goals and contribute to our society through a lifelong career of service.

You are encouraged to contact me or any of our faculty to learn more about our programs.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
