If you aspire to motivate children in your classroom, make instruction more exciting, research instructional methods, or evaluate programs and lessons, a Saint Rose program in Educational Psychology can open these opportunities for you.

Graduates leave this program with the ability to critique any instructional situation—teaching mathematical concepts in a typical classroom, leading adult workshops for the State Education Department, conducting parenting classes, grant writing, program evaluation, and others—and then develop strategies that will help create the optimal learning environment. Students choose from one of four schemes that lead to the degree:

General Scheme: designed for students who seek a broad understanding of educational psychology and its application to diverse contexts

Research Scheme: preferred by students—often aiming for their Ph.D. in Educational Psychology—who will be conducting empirical research in their careers

School Psychology Scheme: open only to those who have been admitted into the Certificate of Advanced Study in School Psychology

Program Evaluation Scheme: for students interested in program evaluation as a career

This program may be useful in advancing students’ progress toward various teacher certifications.
What Is Educational Psychology?
Educational Psychology is a branch of psychology devoted to understanding the psychological issues associated with learning and motivation. Under this broad umbrella, the educational psychologists focus their research attention on the importance of human development, assessment, culture and technology. They look for the relationship between these issues and ways they may impact the learner. With this understanding, educational psychologists strive to create optimal environments where students can flourish academically, socially and personally
