School Psychology (EdD)

Ready to support students' mental health and address social inequities in schools.  The Ed.D. program in School Psychology utilizes a scientist-practitioner model as the foundation for the coursework students are asked to complete. The scientist-practitioner model is also combined with a systems-change lens to enhance one’s understanding of using data-based decision-making and evidence-based practice to address issues of social justice and inequity. The courses in this program have been developed to attain these objectives and provide candidates with the necessary tools to lead for change in schools and communities. To accomplish these overarching objectives, there is a clear focus on assisting candidates to acquire the skills to:

  1. Think systematically within the education system
  2. Analyze and interpret systems-level data
  3. Implement and evaluate evidence-based practices
  4. Develop leadership potential
  5. Further knowledge of inequity within the larger educational community and develop skills to become agents of change
