This degree does not qualify an individual for state licensure or national certification as a school psychologist. The master of education (M.Ed.) in School Psychology is completed en route to earning the educational specialist (Ed.S.) in School Psychology or the doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) in Guidance and Psychological Services with specialization in School Psychology. Therefore, applications to study school psychology must be to either the Ed.S. or Ph.D. program.
In addition to required coursework, the M.Ed. in school psychology requires completion of a culminating project. During the last 12 credit hours of the program, the student will submit a professional project for approval by the training director.
