The Master of Science (M.S.) program in Educational Psychology and Research invites applicants with an undergraduate degree from a range of diverse fields. Applicants to the M.S. program should demonstrate strong college writing skills and a well-rounded academic performance. 

The Educational Psychology concentration also has a unique online M.S. program. The online degree programs at the University of Memphis include students from across the United States and around the globe. The academic requirements for the online program are identical to those for the traditional program, and your transcript will not reflect that you graduated from an online program. 

The Ph.D. program in Educational Psychology and Research welcomes applicants with a Master's degree from diverse fields of inquiry. Applicants to the Ph.D. program should demonstrate a strong commitment to conducting research in the intended concentration areas. In addition to meeting the requirements of the Graduate School, the program requires three recommendation letters by the university professors who know the applicant well. The applicant should demonstrate strong graduate school writing skills and a well-rounded academic performance.
