The School Psychology, Ed.S., training program has existed for more than 45 years and it remains popular among students. Students who choose this option will participate in many of the same courses and field placement opportunities that are available to Ph.D. school psychology students in the Tucson area. Additionally, Ed.S. students receive instruction from full-time University of Arizona faculty and have access to the vast research and cultural resources available at the university. Courses in the Tucson Ed.S. program are taught during fall and spring semesters but generally not during summer sessions. The program requires for most students to complete four semesters on campus plus a two-semester supervised internship in a school system. The Ed.S. program accepts between four and eight students per year and it follows a scholar-practitioner training model, which has a primary emphasis on professional or clinical practice.
