Engage the future of learning for all 

Learning is everywhere, anytime, and for everyone. Educational psychologists possess marketable knowledge, skills, and tools that can be applied to a range of diverse contexts and professions across the lifespan including PK-12 education, higher education, museums, business, government, non-profit organizations, competitive sports, and the military.  

Develop a rigorous understanding of theory and research relevant to you  

All students in the MS in Educational Psychology program develop a foundational understanding of theory, research methods, and measurement. Through individual assignments, concentration coursework, and the program capstone, students tailor the program to their interests and career goals.  

Flexible capstone options include a traditional master’s thesis, an applied scholarly research project, or an internship.  

Graduates of our master’s program are well prepared for consequential applied careers (e.g., Education Data Analyst, Program Evaluator) and advanced graduate study (e.g., PhD program at Mason and elsewhere). 

Work closely with faculty to craft your path 

Our program faculty and staff care about our students and are committed to helping them reach their goals. Students are paired with a faculty advisor who works with them to develop a program of study aligned with their career interests.  Our faculty are nationally and internationally recognized for their expertise in learning and cognition, informal learning, classroom context, self-regulation, motivation, research methods, assessment, and program evaluation.  
Program offerings include an undergraduate minor, graduate certificates in Data Literacy and Program Evaluation, and specialization in the PhD in Education program. We also offer a Master of Science (MS) degree with multiple concentrations and the option for a bachelor's to accelerated masters (BAM) degree.  Concentration areas include:  

Applicants to the masters program or bachelors to accelerated masters (BAM) degree can select their concentration at the time of application or work with their advisor after admission to craft their path. 

Students can enroll part-time or full-time, completing a mix of face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses.
