About the Educational Psychology Master’s Program

The Educational Psychology program is designed to develop educational psychologists and professionals. Students receive rigorous training in theories and applications of the cognitive, motivational, social, and cultural processes that are related to human development, learning, and instruction. The Educational Psychology program is committed to assist students in developing foundational knowledge and skills needed to design and implement theory-driven research studies, apply cutting-edge statistical methods, and evaluate programs that influence educational policy. Thus, the program attracts students from various educational and professional backgrounds including education, psychology, human sciences, business, sports sciences, and health sciences. Graduates are prepared for careers in universities and colleges, public schools and school districts, educational testing companies, private research and development organizations, and federal, state, and local educational agencies.

Students are required to complete a minimum of 45 credit hours for the master of education degree. Students pursuing a master’s degree can do so with or without a thesis.  Students seeking licensure or certification as a school psychologist should pair the 45-hour master’s in educational psychology degree with the 15-hour School Psychology Graduate Certificate . Admission to a master’s program does not constitute later admission to a doctoral program. Additional information about the Educational Psychology program is available at www.depts.ttu.edu/education/graduate/psychology-and-leadership/educational_psychology_med.php.
