Education Specialist

The Education Specialist program (EdS) is a flexible program that is mid-way between a masters and doctoral degree. Many educators complete this degree as they are taking courses for additional endorsements. The University requires that students be admitted to a degree program to continue to take courses. A plan of work for an endorsement, however, is not considered by the university to be a degree program. Therefore, enrollment in this program allows students to work towards this degree while simultaneously pursuing additional endorsements.
