The counseling and student personnel psychology (CSPP) program subscribes to the scientist/practitioner model, which assumes that scholarly inquiry and counseling practice are interdependent and complementary. The program's primary mission is to prepare counseling psychologists to bring a well-trained professional's attitude and interest to bear on the application of psychological and educational knowledge. In addition to becoming skilled clinicians, students learn to be critical consumers and producers of both quantitative and qualitative research
