Educational Psychology & Research

Check out our Fall Colloquia Schedule!

The Educational Psychology and Research (EDPR) Program consists of two interrelated majors, Educational Psychology and Educational Research, both offering doctorate (Ph.D.) and master's (M.S.) programs. Research is a high priority in both concentration areas, and student research, using an intensive research apprenticeship model, is a focus of our programs. Our setting in an urban area offers rich diversity in research opportunities that include working with local schools and community organizations.

Students in Educational Psychology can focus on human development within the domains of early childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and aging, focusing on the cultural nature of these developmental processes in a changing society. Students can also choose to study cognition and motivation in the domains of learning, critical thinking, self-regulation, and giftedness.

Students in Educational Research can choose a quantitative approach including measurement, statistical methods, research design, and institutional research. They can also focus on a qualitative approach such as contemporary theories, strategies, research design, data collection and analysis.

Our Master's of Science (M.S.) program prepares students with diverse backgrounds in education-related fields. Upon graduation, many graduates from the M.S. program advance their professional careers. With a strong emphasis on research in its coursework and daily activities, the program also prepares M.S. degree students for entering the Ph.D. program.

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program in Educational Psychology and Research prepares graduates for teaching and research at the university level, senior administrative positions, educational research, and applied research in human services. Past students from the Ph.D. program have become university professors, senior university administrators, and senior researchers and analysts in both public and private sectors.

Please see our Graduate Student Handbook for detailed information about our programs and processes.
