The overall aim of the Master of Psychology in Educational Psychology programme from University of Malta is to equip students with the necessary educational psychology knowledge, values, attitudes and skills required to practise as an Educational Psychologist.
This is done firstly through taught units on the theories and research on the promotion of health and wellbeing, development and learning of all children and young people, and on relevant prevention, assessment and intervention strategies. Secondly, students have 9 hours of supervised field placement per week throughout the course for them to develop the professional values, ethics, attitudes and skills to address the various needs of children through individual, group, system, and society level strategies. Thirdly students are also provided with training in research including the submission of a dissertation.
