Want to become a School Psychologist?
National Louis University is looking for potential applicants to our National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) accredited graduate program.

With an Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) degree, a 66-semester hour post master’s degree, all of our graduates for the past 5 years have found meaningful employment in schools, despite the weak economy. Our program is located conveniently in Skokie, Illinois. It includes a school-based practicum component every term with an increasing time commitment, and is one of three nationally certified school psychology programs in the greater Chicago area.
