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 a Masters degree en route to the Specialist in School Psychology degree.
Grounded in the scientist-practitioner model of training, dedicated and engaged faculty teach all courses, supervise practical experiences, and collaborate with students in research. Scientific evidence is central to the curriculum and practice. Our students are expected to engage in critical thinking and depend on science for answers. We have created a supportive 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. In addition, advanced students 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 graduates have no problem passing the Illinois State and national licensure examinations, and they work throughout Illinois and in other states. We take pride in acknowledging that our alumni are leaders and advocates of children in school districts and communities across the nation.
I welcome you to our web site and encourage you to explore. Please contact me (email@example.com) if you have questions. Please see our main page for upcoming info sessions to learn more about our program.
