EdS in School Psychology (MEd/EdS)
The M.Ed./Ed.S. dual-degree program in School Psychology prepares students to become an integral part of educating children and supporting parents and staff in schools as school psychologists. The program of study is a nationally approved program aligned with the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) domains and Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) School Psychology Standards. Graduates of the Ed.S. program will also be eligible to take the Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) exam to become certified as a school psychologist in at least 19 other states and will have a working knowledge of NASP training standards.
All students are admitted to the combined M.Ed./Ed.S. program. An M.Ed. degree in Educational Psychology is earned after the first year of study, leading to entrance to the Ed.S. portion of the program.
The School Psychology Program Distinguished Alumnus/a Award is given for outstanding contributions to the profession and the school. It is presented annually at the Loyola School of Education’s Fall Alumni Reception.
