New UTSA graduate degree will train education researchers and practitioners
(December 6, 2016) – UTSA students interested in educational psychology will soon be able to pursue a graduate degree in this area.
Beginning in the Fall 2017 semester, the UTSA Department of Educational Psychology will offer a master's degree program with four concentrations: Applied Educational Psychology, Behavior Assessment and Intervention, General Educational Psychology, and Program Evaluation.
The M.A. in Educational Psychology will prepare students to effectively support the psychological development and wellbeing of children and adolescents through research and service. Students who pursue the degree program will be trained to provide effective educational and psychological services to their communities and schools.
"We are very excited to provide our students with the option to pursue a graduate degree in educational psychology," said Jeremy Sullivan, chair of the department, and professor of educational psychology. "The degree will train the next generation of scientist-practitioners and researchers in educational psychology. Students will be able to learn from certified experts in their fields, conduct intensive research projects and gain a strong foundation in educational psychology theory, which they can use to develop their careers."
The UTSA Department of Educational Psychology, housed in the College of Education and Human Development, promotes the development and application of scientific knowledge in education. Students and graduates from the department acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in scholarly inquiry, deliver accountable, research-based services, and use psychology as a force for positive change within their communities.
Educational Psychology already offers two graduate certificate programs – one in Applied Behavior Analysis and the other in Language Acquisition and Bilingual Psycho-educational Assessment – to students. It also offers a Master of Arts degree in School Psychology for students who want to work with children and adolescents experiencing academic, emotional and behavioral difficulties. In each degree program, students are given a variety of research and clinical training opportunities.
The UTSA College of Education and Human Development offers 9 undergraduate, 16 master's and four doctoral degree programs. It is home to the largest graduate student enrollment at UTSA.
UTSA is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and among the top 100 in the nation, according to Times Higher Education.
