Department of Educational Psychology

Greetings and welcome to the Department of Educational Psychology. Our mission is to promote the development and application of scientific knowledge across educational contexts and communities. We offer degrees for students interested in practitioner- or research-focused careers. Our practitioner-oriented degrees provide training to become a licensed and practicing School Psychologist or a Board Certified Behavior Analyst licensed to practice in the state of Texas. For students interested in other educational pathways, we also offer a master's degree in Applied Educational Psychology. For this degree, students are trained both in the foundations of the discipline while offering flexible pathways for students to pursue a variety of career and educational goals.


We offer a NASP accredited master's program in School Psychology, an ABAI-verified master's degree and certificate in Behavior Analysis, and a master's degree in Applied Educational Psychology. Our degrees prepare students for professional opportunities in research or to become a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP) or a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.


We are dedicated to our students’ success and strive to provide opportunities to deepen their learning in whatever focus area they so choose. Our faculty are engaged in funded research that provides students opportunities to develop their research and practitioner skills.
