It aims to develop graduates who can demonstrate:
- broad scholarship in planning and implementing basic and applied research on problems of cognition, teaching, learning, and human development;
- mastery of current theoretical issues in educational psychology and their historical development; and
- a detailed knowledge of their selected concentration.
Human Development concentration: The Human Development concentration builds upon the M.A. program and is intended to prepare students to work in school, institutional, and university settings.
The degree prepares candidates to support the educational and psychological well-being of individuals, to use research to critically inform practice, and to be able to conceptualize and conduct applied and theoretical research related to different trajectories of human development and varied educational settings.
The program follows a mentorship model that encourages students’ active participation in research and prepares them for academia and leadership roles in the field.
The Human Development program is unique in exploring development including cognitive, language, social, personality, and gender development issues in children and adolescents from the diverse perspectives of our multidisciplinary faculty. These perspectives are then employed to better understand issues related to disabilities and individuals’ diverse needs in educational and community settings.
