Program Highlights

As you pursue a graduate degree in Educational Psychology, you’ll develop a deep understanding of the ways that people learn—the processes that allow us to acquire new information and to develop new skills.  This knowledge will help you to become a more effective educator.

You can choose from two Master’s programs: the applied (non-thesis) Master of Education (Literacy Education) and the research-intensive, thesis-based Research Master of Arts (Literacy Education).
