Degree Title Change (Effective Fall 2012): Ed.S. in School Psychology
As of Fall 2012, the Northern Arizona University M.A. in School Psychology plus Certification program will change to an Ed.S. in School Psychology degree. The Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) title better reflects the advanced nature of the degree. The school psychology degree requires additional coursework beyond most master's degrees (30-48 credit hours), but is not equivalent to a doctoral degree. The Ed.S. is a nationally recognized degree title in school psychology. The degree program continues to lead to certification as a school psychologist by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE).

EPS Department Awarded NAU Global
Initiative Steering Committee Grant
The Department of Educational Psychology was awarded a grant
from the NAU Global Initiative Steering Committee to implement the global
learning values into the curriculum of the Student Affairs program. The
implementation plan incorporates all core student affairs courses (EPS 565,
602, and 603), and the fieldwork, practicum, assistantship, and internship
experiences. Two summer study tours are planned for summer 2011: Student Affairs
in Europe, and Culture and History of China. Core faculty in the Student
Affairs program are identifying Learning Outcomes for the global learning foci
(i.e., global engagement, diversity, environmental sustainability). The
TaskStream Direct Response Folio (DRF) is being used to provide feedback to
students on their reflective writings in EPS 565, and to collect data to inform
future curricular decisions.
