The Education Specialist, also referred to as Educational Specialist or Specialist in Education (Ed.S. or S.Ed.), is a terminal professional degree in the U.S. that is designed to provide knowledge and theory beyond the master's degree level, but is not as demanding or prestigious as a doctorate. Generally 60 hours of graduate study are required and no dissertation is required; specialities are available in educational leadership, school psychology, special education, curriculum and Instruction, and adult education.
