MEd in Educational Psychology

"There is a demand for school psychologists across the nation. School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, behaviorally, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments. School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. Our graduates are making an impact on the lives of children and youth in Pennsylvania and across the country. Our program is nationally approved (http://www.nasponline.org/graduate-education/grad-edu.aspx). We provide a structured curriculum, small class sizes, and supervised field experiences for our students. Our aim is to develop professional competencies in school psychology for our students and inspire them with a passion for helping children and youth."- Dr. E. Snyder Program Head

The master of education degree in educational psychology has been designed to give the interested student a broad theoretical and practical background in the areas of education and psychology. The program will be of interest to those planning to pursue certification in school psychology after the master’s degree, those wishing to broaden their understanding of human development and learning, and those wishing to learn more about evaluation and research. Respect for diversity among individuals, groups, and communities are emphasized throughout the curriculum. The goal of our program is to help each candidate to identify and apply his/her unique talents while utilizing problem-solving, data-based approaches that allow him/her to work with children and families having a broad range of needs. The focus of our program is on the application of empirically supported approaches to assist all children in achieving academic success, social competence, and emotional and physical health. This program is a fall start only program.
