Master of Arts (M.A.) Educational Psychology (Thesis)


Что я буду изучать?

The aim of the M.A. (Thesis) in Educational Psychology is to produce graduates who:

are broadly trained in educational psychology;
have sufficient research competence to critically evaluate research in educational psychology, and to design, conduct, and report empirical research; and
have experience in applying research methods and findings to the solution of practical problems in varied educational settings.

Candidates are required to select and follow the set of courses in one of three concentrations of study or the Major in School/Applied Child Psychology, select a topic for research, and present the results of such research in a thesis.

The program offers three concentrations and one major:

The Health Professions Education concentration is dedicated to the preparation of qualified researchers, developers, and practitioners who can advance the scientific understanding and practice of teaching and learning as they happen in the health professions and throughout the lifespan. The program is for health professionals who are interested in conducting educational research and working on development projects (e.g., program, curriculum, faculty) as well as for educational psychology graduate students who are interested in issues related to medical education and education in other health professions.

The Human Development concentration focuses on core areas of human development such as cognitive, language, social, personality, and gender development among children and adolescents with diverse trajectories and from various family, educational, and community contexts. The program is unique in examining developmental trajectories from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives. Theses work should focus on an issue in the field of human development related to educational psychology.

The Learning Sciences concentration aims to develop competent and inquiring professionals who have the skills to understand and improve learning and teaching by way of conceptualizing and conducting applied and theoretical research in different formal and informal educational settings. It is dedicated to the preparation of qualified researchers, developers, and practitioners who can advance the scientific understanding and practice of teaching and learning in schools, colleges and universities, the workplace and professional practice, as well as virtual learning communities. Students acquire theoretical and practical knowledge through coursework, team-based research assistantships, and apprenticeships where appropriate.
