About Educational Psychology
Masters degrees in Educational Psychology explore theories and methodologies from the psychology of learning and teaching, focusing on schools, colleges, higher education and lifelong learning.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Psychology of Education and Child Psychology. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Child Development Studies, Education or Psychology.
Educational psychologists work across a range of contexts to improve the learning of children, adolescents and adults in institutional settings.
Courses equip you with the skills to promote positive social, emotional and behavioural development, as well as social inclusion. This is achieved through the development of techniques in cooperative problem-solving between learners, teachers and families, along with the examination and improvement of current policy and practice.
Placements are component of some courses, where you shadow teaching professionals during classes and potentially carry out group projects.
As well as schools and higher education, educational psychologists work within children’s homes, nursing homes, community centres, probation and rehabilitation services. Other career routes include administration or policy-making on behalf of local or central government, NGOs and charities.
