Specialist in Education Degree (EdS)

The major purpose of the program for the specialist in education (EdS) degree is to provide a plan of advanced study for persons who need an additional year of study beyond the master’s degree. The curricular program allows a greater depth of specialization than is possible at the master’s level, and a plan of study is tailored to meet each candidate’s specific needs. Although the specialist in education degree is self-contained and terminal, certain courses may sometimes be applied to a doctoral program.
