The purpose of the Specialist Degree in School Psychology is to give students advanced academic and professional training in school psychology. The program leads to certification as a school psychologist in the State of Illinois and is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). Students who are admitted to this program have a graduate degree such as the masters degree granted through SIUE's Clinical Child and School Psychology Program. Students with an interest in the specialist degree who have completed a masters degree in educational psychology, clinical psychology, special education or a related field, or school psychologists who received their education prior to the most recent upgrading of the requirements for certification, should contact the program director to ensure eligibility.
