Educational Psychology

 

How do humans learn? What motivates us to acquire knowledge? And how do we become more successful learners? In Hunter’s Educational Psychology concentrations, students explore the most current, research-based answers to these questions through a challenging curriculum. The General Educational Psychology concentration offers scholarly training in theories of learning and human development. The Assessment, Research, and Evaluation concentration prepares students to evaluate, assess, and measure educational programs. Guided by excellent faculty, students engage in rigorous course work, research opportunities, and internships. They learn how to synthesize qualitative and quantitative approaches to data analysis, hone academic writing skills, and work with diverse populations across settings. Whether your final goal is to pursue a doctorate, work in an education setting, or find employment in the private sector, our Educational Psychology programs provide key research and evaluation skills.
