Administrative History

The Department of Educational Psychology (1972-1997) was an instructional unit at Brigham Young University. The department taught courses on special education, counseling/guidance, audiology, and various forms of psychology.

The Department of Educational Psychology was established after the dissolution of the Department of Education in 1972. The department first included programs that led to the bachelor's degree in special education, and to graduate degrees-M.A., E.Ed., Ed.D., and Sixth-Year Specialist in the areas of school psychology, instructional psychology, counseling and guidance, instructional media, and special education. The Department later added degrees in audiology and speech language pathology. The Institute for Special Education was also part of the department. Teachers in this institute were trained to teach the mentally handicapped, learning disabled, visually handicapped, and emotionally handicapped children.

Department chairs included Darwin F. Gale (1972-1987), Ronald D. Bingham (1987-1988), Parley W. Newman (1988-1990), and Ronald D. Bingham (1990-1997).
