Kaplan University’s Master of Science in Educational Psychology teaches you how to build, implement, and evaluate instructional regimens that are both competitive and educationally effective. You’ll receive training in the latest instructional techniques, technologies, educational trends, and learning behaviors.

About

The Master of Science in Educational Psychology is designed to help you develop competencies to evaluate and recommend improvements in educational programs, student learning, and instruction in many settings from K-12 to universities to corporate and government environments. It is not focused on the clinical practice of school psychologists and does not lead to licensure or certification.

Our graduates have the potential to seek careers in all types of environments that hire program evaluators, educational program administrators, or operations research analysts. Students are exposed to, and collaborate with, diverse faculty from the School of Graduate Education – Teacher Education and Higher Education Divisions and the School of Arts and Sciences - Graduate Psychology Department.

Faculty members who are practicing professionals in the field will guide you as you:
  • Select research design and methodologies that effectively address needs, processes, and outcomes in program evaluation
  • Create educational and psychological interventions that promote academic performance and social-emotional behavior
  • Integrate reasonable adaptations to educational policies, practices, and accommodations to create equivalent learning environments and experiences for diverse populations

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00.

Academic Requirements

To apply to Kaplan University’s graduate programs, you must:

  • Submit an unofficial transcript indicating receipt of a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • By the last day of the first term, you must provide the University with an official copy of the transcript. If an official transcript is not submitted by this time, you will be withdrawn from the University, blocked from reentry, and your academic credentials will be withheld until such documentation is provided.
