The Educational Psychology program offers a Master of Education non-thesis and Master of Arts in Education thesis degree programs in four concentrations: Evaluation, Human Relations, Education of the Blind or Visually Impaired and Education of the Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
Full-time students entering the Evaluation or Human Relations concentration program in September should plan their program to include courses offered during the May/June session. Students wishing to complete the program earlier must receive permission from their faculty advisor. The program concentrations for the Blind or Visually Impaired and the Deaf or Hard of Hearing are generally started in April/May.
Minimum requirements for admission to the human relations and evaluation concentrations are a bachelor’s degree and evidence of one year successful teaching or equivalent professional experience. For those teaching in the public school system, a BEd or its equivalent is also required. Those involved in other educational settings are encouraged to apply.
Minimum requirements for admission to the concentrations for the education of the blind or visually impaired and for the education of the deaf or hard of hearing are a Bachelor of Education or equivalent and one year successful teaching experience in the public school system. For teachers with previous training in the education of students who are blind, visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, a thesis option is available.
Only students who show the potential to perform well in graduate studies, normally a minimum average of B (GPA 3.0) and positive letters of recommendation will be considered for admission.
Admission to the program is on a competitive basis. Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
