School Psychology Educational Specialist (Ed.S.)
Our Educational Specialist degree is a three-year training program that will ensure all graduates meet the criteria needed to become a National Certified School Psychologist (NCSP).
As evidence of the quality of our training, our students compete extremely well for internship positions, both locally and nationally. Over the past 10 years, 100% of our Ed.S. students have found internship positions in a school district. In addition, all Ed.S. graduates who have sought employment as a school psychologist have obtained jobs as school psychologists.
