EdS Hybrid Track


Our hybrid track includes online coursework with weekly synchronous requirements on weeknights and quarterly on-campus training requirements. Appropriate candidates for the program have undergraduate degrees in psychology, education, or related fields. Those with master’s degrees who wish to have more face-to-face time than our fully online tracks offers may also apply. Candidates are encouraged to work in schools or related settings while completing coursework and field experiences throughout the program.
