Thank you for your interest in the School Psychology Program at Eastern Illinois University. Instituted in 1969, the program has a long distinguished history, and it grants Specialist in School Psychology.

Grounded in the scientist-practitioner model of training, dedicated and engaged faculty teach all the courses, supervise practical experiences, and collaborate with students in research. Scientific evidence is central to the curriculum and practice. Our students are expected to question and depend on science for answers. We have created a learning environment dedicated to the educational and professional development of our students.

We also provide assistantships to help students defray the cost of their education. These students assist faculty with teaching and research responsibilities. As advanced students, they have opportunities for external graduate assistantships working in school districts in the area.

So far, the program has enjoyed 100% Internship and job placement; and our students have no problem passing the Illinois State and National licensure examinations. We take pride in acknowledging that our alumni are leaders and advocates of children in school districts, communities, and state.

I welcome you and encourage you to explore our web site and contact me (ahailemariam@eiu.edu) if you have questions or you would like to make a campus visit.

I hope to hear from you,

Assegedetch HaileMariam, Ph.D.
