Are you interested in delving into researched-based knowledge and developing skills and attitudes that will help improve teaching-learning processes and student achievement? Do you want to help inform a wide range of practices and concerns within education? As an educational psychology student, you'll be encouraged to focus your creativity, imagination and intelligence on real-world challenges impacting learning environments, basing your recommendations and decisions on research findings and objective evidence. This program concentration provides opportunities for you to develop in-depth understanding about educational psychology as it relates to human development. You'll study developmental characteristics of children, adolescents, and adults - including cognitive, social and emotional, language, and physical development.
You will study with outstanding faculty who will help you develop professionally by connecting you to knowledge and practices apparent in today's schools - some traditional, some innovative, and most reform-oriented.
Classes are designed to fit your busy schedule, some face-to-face, some online, and some over weekends, etc. Students complete the 36 credits in 2 to 3 years taking 1 to 3 classes at a time.
The School of Education & Human Development has proposed changing the name of the Educational Psychology degree to Education and Human Development. If approved, the name change could go into effect as soon as Fall, 2015.
