About the Educational Psychology Doctoral 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 assisting 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 91 credit hours beyond the bachelor’s degree for the doctor of philosophy degree. Students interested in school psychology should apply for admission into the school psychology track. Applicants without a strong background in psychology may be required to complete leveling courses before unconditional admission to the program.
