Welcome to the Division of Counseling & Psychology in Education
Our schools and communities need ethical, reflective professionals who are dedicated to improving the lives of children, adolescents and adults. Through careers in mental health, school counseling and human development and educational psychology, individuals can promote the well-being of their communities and make a difference.
The USD Division of Counseling & Psychology in Education fosters a community of learners, scholars, educators and advocates. Our graduate programs in counseling, human developmental and educational psychology, and school psychology emphasize competent and ethical practices grounded in rigorous scholarship that is informed by theory and evidence. Our expert faculty are actively contributing research to their fields and serving in leadership positions as they train our students – enabling a rich learning environment in which our students witness and engage in real-world application of course material. And through every experience we prioritize social responsibility, self-awareness and responsiveness to the needs of individuals of all backgrounds and lived experiences. Our students graduate as thoughtful leaders ready to work at the forefront of education, mental health, ethics and research.
