EdS in School Psychology
Education Specialist (EdS) in School Psychology

Thought. Emotion. Behavior. These building blocks of who we are can be roadblocks to understanding and education in the lives of young people. The Education Specialist (EdS) in School Psychology degree program provides advanced preparation for students who intend to pursue state licensure or certification as a school psychologist.

The model for services by school psychologists is embedded throughout the curriculum with particular emphasis on data-based decision-making, diversity and social justice to ensure learners are prepared to provide services in dynamic, complex and ever-evolving communities.


Apply your skills and knowledge with direct client contact and supervision, in both a part-time practicum and a full-time internship.


Network with faculty and peers, and gain access to valuable resources to use during your program and beyond, through a clinical training residency.
