EdS in School Psychology

73 credits

Degree requirements

Candidates for the specialist degree in educational psychology (school) at Ball State University must have satisfactorily completed a minimum of 73 graduate credits beyond the baccalaureate (that may include credit earned at the master’s degree level); the departmentally approved examination; the professional portfolio of evidence; and supervised practicum and internship experiences. Because the specialist degree is intended for those seeking school psychologist licensure in Indiana and other states, all course work must be approved by the program director.
