The Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology offers programs leading to the following degrees: Master of Science in Education (Plans A and B available), the Specialist in Education (Ed.S.), and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Applications to the Master of Arts in Education and the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degrees are no longer accepted. Students must apply for admission to both the Graduate School and to the Department. Doctoral applications must be completed by December 1 for summer/fall admission. All other degree applications have a deadline of January 15. Within the degree programs offered, three specializations are possible: counseling psychology, educational psychology, and school psychology. Specializations are designed to provide students with both a background in behavioral and humanistic components of human learning and behavior, and the competencies to practice the skills designated for these programs. Admission to candidacy in any of these programs includes not only demonstrated skills in the academic area, but a judgment by the faculty of the program that the candidate demonstrates the personal and social characteristics, as well as the professional commitment and ethical standards requisite, for providing the services and demonstrating the skills associated with the program and the advanced degree.
