Putting Your School Psychology Degree to Work

Upon completion of the degree requirements for the Educational Specialist in School Psychology, including the Ed.S. research project and final exam, the student will be recommended for the initial two-year license as a school psychologist in Kansas. Upon satisfactory completion of the internship experience (typically a one year, full-time on the job, the student will be recommended for full licensure/certification.

See the school's Licensure section for more information about application, applying out-of-state, Kansas licensure exams, FAQs, licensure renewal, and other regulations.

Over the last four years, an average of about seven new students each year have been admitted and enrolled in the Ed.S. program. These students have come from Kansas and states nationwide. All of our 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.
