The Educational Specialist in School Psychology provides training for a professional career as a certified or licensed school psychologist. Training is based on a philosophy that promotes the balanced development of the mental, physical, social and spiritual nature of individuals. Typical responsibilities are assessment, diagnosis, consultation, and intervention services to preschool and school-age children with educational, emotional and behavioral problems. This program also provides field, practicum and internship experience.
The PhD in School Psychology builds on the NASP approved EdS in School Psychology. This degree extends the school psychologist’s skills in the area of supervision or more in-depth understanding of school psychological practice, and research methodology. Since the EdS School Psychology degree is part of the PhD School Psychology, students entering must have either graduated with the EdS, or be concurrently enrolled.
The EdS and PhD in School Psychology programs only admit new students for Fall semester. Exceptions to this can be discussed with the program’s coordinator.
Prospective students must submit their applications by July 30 for the year they wish to begin.
