Educational Specialist (EdS)

The CEPR department also offers an EdS degree. It is a specialist program that typically involves a path to licensure in counseling given one has a masters degree related to or in counseling. One example is using the EdS degree to become a licensed school counselor. If you already have a master's degree and you are interested in becoming a school counselor then you definitely need to talk to us about the educational specialist degree. It's quite possibly the shortest academic path for you to becoming a school counselor plus, in most school districts it will give you a boost on the salary scale. Each specialist degree is individually tailored to a specific student depending on what kind of master's degree and what previous course work he or she has had. If you think this is something you'd be interested in call Dr. Dick James, coordinator of school counseling at 678-4495 or e-mail him at rjames@memphis.edu. Dr James will be able to analyze your transcript and tell you what to expect in terms of coursework you would need to complete the degree.
