Department of Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education

The Department of Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education (EPCSE) is one of the four departments within the College of Education. Here you have the opportunity to gain a firm foundation in the elements of school psychology, educational psychology, counselor education, special education, and rehabilitation and human services.

The mission of the Department of Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education is to generate and apply interdisciplinary research, theory, and practice to improve individual, school, and community outcomes, and to reduce disparities among diverse populations across the Commonwealth of PA, the nation, and the global community. We strive to maximize learner success and human potential across the lifespan through prevention and intervention research and community engagement, particularly for those who face adverse conditions due to bias and systematic racism inherent in policies, procedures, and common practices. We are committed to providing high-quality education programs; conducting high-impact, interdisciplinary research; serving as a source of methodological and statistical expertise for the College; and fostering a departmental climate that is welcoming and inclusive of diverse individuals.
