Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)

Whether you are looking to further your career in school administration, become a school counseling specialist or expand your knowledge beyond the master’s or Rank I level, completing a Specialist in Education (Ed.S.) program at MSU will prepare you for career advancement.
The specialist in education program offers students who have demonstrated superior scholastic ability and special interest and aptitude in certain areas the opportunity to gain a high level of competency in a chosen specialized field for service as instructors, supervisors or administrators. In some cases, the program may serve to advance the candidate toward the doctorate.
