What will I learn?

The Educational Specialist (EdS) program in School Psychology will prepare you to work as a school psychologist and leads to certification from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Based on a scientist-practitioner model and coursework in educational psychology and complementary disciplines, our program emphasizes a concrete link between theory, research and practice through core applied courses and supervised practical and internships.

Degree Requirements

The program requires a minimum of 60 graduate credits beyond the bachelor’s degree. The maximum required credits range from 60-69 credits depending on students’ prior coursework. Students typically take classes related to the major roles and functions of school psychologists in intervention, consultation and assessment, as well as foundational courses in related disciplines (measurement, development, family ecology, counseling, statistics) and education. Students are encouraged to conduct research, evaluate programs and to empirically evaluate the efficacy of their practice in the areas of prevention, intervention and consultation. Candidates must be available to complete a 600-hour practice over their second academic year and to complete an internship of 1,200 hours (which is typically a paid position as a school psychologist).
