Ball State Educational Psychology students receive hands-on, experiential learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom setting. As a student, you’ll engage with the community at large through practical experiences supported broadly in the University. Students in the School Psychology program in particular will work in clinical spaces that are housed in the Department. This provides immediate and consistent practical experience to develop your clinical skills under the direct supervision of our highly recognized faculty.
Psychoeducational Diagnostic Intervention Clinic
This clinic allows faculty and students the opportunity to offer low-cost psychological and educational assessments to people of all ages. While serving the community, the clinic also provides training for MA, EdS, and PhD students in school psychology, who work under the supervision of licensed health service providers.
The Neuropsychology Laboratory was established in 1984 as a research and teaching facility of the Department of Educational Psychology. The laboratory primarily conducts research focused on the functioning of patients with known or suspected psychiatric and neurological disorders and the neuropsychological tests used to measure those functions. The Neuropsychology Laboratory provides support for neuropsychology courses offered through the Department of Educational Psychology's cognate specialization in neuropsychology.
Students in our PhD in school psychology program may take advantage of additional internship support through a consortium through which we've partnered with schools, neuropsychology practices, community medical centers, and private practices. Learn more.
