Program Details

Teachers seeking to advance their experiences and develop an in-depth understanding of Psychology in the classroom may partake in Temple University’s online Masters of Education with a concentration on Educational Psychology degree program. The online program allows practicing teachers to earn the education needed to acquire leadership positions, head psychology departments, and achieve an overall better understanding of theories related to education psychology.

The M. Ed. Program intends to enhance a student teacher’s understanding of learning, cognition, and human development as they apply to the educational processes and practices essential to the growth of school aged individuals. The Educational Psychology concentration emphasizes on giving graduate students the opportunity to increase their uses of theory and research when applying psychology methods to educational institutions. The Educational Psychology concentration focuses on three major areas: learning and conceptual processes, human development, and applied data analysis (assessment).

Graduate students must satisfy at least 30 credit hours in order to earn the Masters of Education degree with a concentration on Educational Psychology. The specialized curriculum is comprised of core educational psychology courses that aim to strengthen a student’s understanding of statistics and research, tests and measurements, research design learning, human development, and learning theories. The M. Ed. program will culminate with a final project, which should allow graduates to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the programs primary objectives.
