UW-Stout's School Psychology Masters is designed for students who wish to become practitioners. The program develops skills in psychology and education. Students proceed through the program as a cohort and during the first year take courses in psyhology, measurement, educaiton, assessment, and counseling. In the second year, students take coursework required for certificaiton as a school psychologist. A highlight of the program is the 600 hours of supervised practica experience in a school setting which exceeds the practical experience in other school psychology programs.
