Online MS in Educational Psychology and Research

The Online Master of Science (MS) Program in Educational Psychology and Research (EDPR) is designed specifically for students seeking to expand their present career opportunities or who are interested in preparing for future doctoral graduate work. In an online, but engaging format, students will acquire core knowledge and skills in the following areas:

  • Human development, including in the areas of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, especially as these impact student learning and achievement.
  • Learning and Cognition/Motivation, including in the areas of self-regulation, achievement motivation, self-efficacy, and theories about how students learn most effectively.
  • Research Methodology, including an introduction to educational research design, and either quantitative or qualitative research methods.

Previous graduates who have earned the Online EDPR MS degree have come from a variety of professional backgrounds, including teachers or prospective teachers, school administrators, military personnel, health professionals, ministers, law enforcement officers, social workers, consultants, and people from the business community. These individuals also often have very diverse professional interests and goals but find that their needs can be met through earning the EDPR MS degree.

The online EDPR MS degree is designed to be the same as the face-to-face degree in that online students will work with and be taught by the same faculty.
