  • preparing culturally competent scientist-practitioners and researchers to effectively contribute to the applied psychological development and well-being of children and adolescents;
  • providing responsive educational and psychological services to the local community, schools, and beyond; and

Our Vision

The Department of Educational Psychology’s vision is to be a nationally recognized, tier-one department of educational psychology with a strong emphasis on teaching, research, and policy development for preparing educational leader-scholars committed to equity, access, and student success.

We are proud to partner with most school districts as well as many charter schools and clinics in the greater San Antonio area to provide real-life experiences for students.

Our department hosts several professional development workshops throughout the year, which attract local school psychologists, educators, and board-certified behavior analysts. This allows students to interact and network with professionals in the field. Additionally, many of our graduate students are able to present and publish research with faculty.
