Psychology and Counseling (Specialist)
The Specialist in Education degree (Ed.S.) with a major in Psychology and Counseling
offers a planned program of studies designed to lead to state licensure in counseling, school
psychology, and psychology. A Flexible Options Track is also available. Information about
requirements for licensure can be obtained from the Arkansas Board of Examiners in Counseling,
the Arkansas Department of Education, and the Arkansas Psychology Board and from the
Program Coordinators in the Department of Psychology and Counseling. The design of each
candidate's program is based on that student's previous academic preparation, professional
experiences, and career aspirations.
NOTE: Enrollment in 7000-level courses with COUN and PSY prefixes requires admission
to the Ed.S. in Psychology and Counseling, unconditional admission to another university's
accredited post-master degree program with a major in psychology or counseling, or (with
permission) admission to the Ed.S. in Educational Leadership, the Specialist in Community
College Teaching Program, or the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership.
