Education Specialist (Ed.S.): School Psychology


The Program For The School Psychology Specialty is designed to produce graduates who meet requirements for licensure in school psychology from the Tennessee Department of Education.  We are prepared to utilize commonly accepted "best practices" in our work as school psychologists, and are prepared to provide leadership in our field to schools and other organizations serving children and adolescents.
