The Educational Specialist program is designed for counselors in school and clinical mental health settings who hold a master’s degree in the field of counseling or related field.  See details from the following link:

Ed.S. in Counselor Education* – Ed.S. 30 hours

*Effective fall semester 2016, the Ed.S. Program in Counselor Education and Student Services in Higher Education will be closed to student applicants. This decision comes as a result of much consideration and due deliberation concerning low student enrollment. Students currently enrolled in the program will be able to complete their programs of study, but no new students will be admitted.  Please feel free to contact Dr. Beth Durodoye, Chair, Department of Leadership, Technology, and Human Development, for further information.
