Develop competencies in culturally relevant and responsive intervention, assessment, consultation, and prevention through course work, clinic- and field-based practica, and an internship through our Master of Arts/Specialist in Education in School Psychology Program. We are an inclusive and community-focused program where our students gain extensive, direct, and supervised experience with diverse populations.
The course sequence also includes the study of human development, individual differences, learning, curriculum, research methods, and statistics to prepare you to be a scientist-practitioner-advocate.
Our MA/EdS in school psychology program educates you in accordance with Indiana school psychology licensure requirements and National Association of School Psychologists standards. In order to be eligible for licensure through Ball State University, you must minimally complete all course requirements (73 semester hours) for the EdS program.
The EdS degree normally requires two years of full-time study on campus for completion of coursework and practica, plus a full-time internship during the third year.
