MSc in Educational Psychology

The Master of Science in Educational Psychology focuses on the study of cognitive, emotional and social learning processes that underlie education and human development across the lifespan. The programme in Educational Psychology is targeted towards school educators who want to gain expertise in the normal and atypical patterns of development and learning. More specifically, the MSc in Educational Psychology aims at providing students with evidence-based knowledge and skills concerning:

  • The learning theory approaches and their educational implications
  • The wide spectrum of learning difficulties across the life span, in order to be able to identify the cases that require intervention in the school context and elsewhere
  • The domain-specific psychological development from infancy to adulthood, with specific emphasis on its cognitive, emotional and social dimensions and their impact on the learning processes
  • The main developmental disorders, as they are manifested in childhood, adolescence and adulthood, as well as their direct impact on learning and behaviour
  • The awareness of the role that cultural and social parameters play in the educator’s interaction with students and parents
  • Developmental patterns during the above evolutionary phases

The techniques and methods used in educational and psychological research

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The graduates of the MSc programme in Educational Psychology will:

  • acquire an in-depth understanding of the cognitive processes that underlie learning and thinking in both formal and informal education and their typical as well as atypical development
  • acquire strategies that can enhance their professional practice in schools and universities, early childhood programmes, and government agencies.
  • develop scientific research skills (by participating in ongoing research projects and by conducting small-scale research projects in the context of the Independent Research Study, and/or by conducting an empirical study in the context of a Masters Thesis) that can be applied to advance scientific knowledge in Educational Psychology and address practical issues in diverse education and community settings.
