(63 credits)

The educational specialist (Ed.S.) degree in school psychology is designed to prepare persons for school-based practice as licensed school psychologists.  The program aspires to prepare professional school psychologists through the integration of theoretical, empirical, technical, and interpersonal competencies in the application of a problem-solving model. The program is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). 

The Ed.S. degree is regarded as an advanced practitioner’s degree and, as such, is a continuation of work completed in pursuit of a master’s degree.  Students admitted to this program may earn the master of education (M.Ed.) in School Psychology en route to completion of the Ed.S. degree. Students who have already earned a master’s degree in a related field may be offered the opportunity to pursue the Ed.S. degree without also earning the M.Ed. in School Psychology. 

 

Ed.S. Program Requirements:


Internship (6 credits)


Culminating Experience


In the final year of study, students complete a 1200-hour, year-long internship and complete a final applied research project, as prescribed in the regulations of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies.
