Putting Your School Psychology Degree to Work
Upon completion of the degree requirements for the educational specialist in school psychology, KSDE issues the educator license for school psychologists. Individuals interested in pursuing educator licensure as a school psychologist must first complete an educational specialist (Ed.S.) degree in school psychology. If planning to start an internship in the fall, individuals must complete the degree requirements by the end of the summer session and apply for graduation. Upon completion of the Ed.S. degree requirements (including a research project, internship experience, and ETS exam), most individuals should review instructions for applicants and apply online to complete Form 1 through the KSDE web site here.
All Ed.S. graduates have obtained employment in the public schools, with most of them remaining in the northeast Kansas area. A number, however, have obtained employment in other states including Arizona, Nebraska, South Dakota, Florida, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, and Virginia.
