The School Psychology, Specialist in Education (Ed.S.) Program at New Mexico State University is currently accepting applications from now until Jan. 15 to be considered for the class of 2019. The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) accredits the program, and is the only one of its kind in the state of New Mexico. All graduates meet the standards of NASP and the school psychology licensure criteria for the state of New Mexico. Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible for licensure in the state as well as National Certification (NCSP) as a School Psychologist.
The terminal degree, Specialist in Education (Ed.S.), provides advanced training beyond the master’s degree, but not as advanced as the doctorate (78 credit hours). Unique to this program is the opportunity to obtain a master’s degree in Educational Diagnostics upon completion of specified 30 credit hours/content within the Ed.S. Program. Also unique is that the program espouses a multicultural training philosophy that is evident in the cultural and linguistic diversity of its students, faculty and staff within the Counseling & Educational Psychology (CEP) Department
