Welcome!

The Master of Science degree in Educational Psychology is designed for professionals working in school settings, colleges and universities, and business and government as well as those preparing for work in these and related areas. Courses for this degree are offered online through distance education.  Our faculty deliver the courses through synchronous methodology which means you will need to be online with the instructor and other students at the designated evening and time which is currently Eastern Standard Time. The faculty members in the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling are committed to the creation and study of environments that enhance learning potential and promote lifelong learning for people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.  The program requires 36 hours of non-thesis coursework and a comprehensive examination. Students take 24 hours of core courses and choose from two concentrations for 12 additional hours in either Adult Education or Applied Educational Psychology.

  • Minimum of 36 credit hours of online coursework
  • Degree can be earned in two years by taking two online courses every semester, for six semesters

Adult Education Concentration

Focuses on the advanced educational needs of professionals who work with adults in a host of settings.  The concentration includes coursework in such areas as adult learning and development, program planning, reflective practice, professional issues in adult education, research, and teaching adults.  Emphasis is on the development of reflective practitioners who actively participate in leadership and service to promote adult learning in a global community.  This concentration may be used as a stepping stone for doctoral study in adult education, adult learning, or related areas.

Applied Educational Psychology Concentration

Focuses on concepts, principles, techniques, and models of educational psychology as they are used to facilitate teaching and learning and the creation of effective classroom environments for learners of all ages.  The concentration includes traditional themes in educational psychology (e.g., human development, learning principles, assessment, and psychoeducational intervention).  The concentration may be used as a stepping stone for entering a doctoral program in educational or school psychology or as an additional preparation for functioning in an educational role in schools, mental health centers, and business programs devoted to personal and professional development.
