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.
