Educational Psychology is the study of the mental processes that allow people to learn—to acquire new knowledge and develop new skills. This knowledge will help you to become a more effective educator.
As you earn your Master’s degree in Educational Psychology, you will pursue one of four areas of concentration:
- Education of the Blind or Visually Impaired
- Education of the Deaf or Hard of Hearing
- Human Relations
Our degrees in Educational Psychology at Mount Saint Vincent University will help you to develop your career as a classroom teacher, an itinerant teacher, or an educational consultant with learners who are blind/visually impaired or deaf/hard of hearing, an educator outside the public school system, or an educational administrator by obtaining advanced knowledge and skills in a concentrated area within the field of Educational Psychology.
Graduates of our programs are working as classroom, itinerant, and community teachers, educators in the corporate, government, arts and not-for-profit sectors, consultants, administrators, scholars, and university and college instructors.
