Applied Educational Psychology (MA)

Today’s students face a variety of problems, only some of which are from their homework. A master’s degree in Applied Educational Psychology from Webster University will enable you to help students achieve academically, socially and emotionally.

Our program is specifically designed for educators seeking a deeper knowledge and practical application of the principles of educational psychology for school-aged children, adolescents and their families. You’ll learn the assessment of learning differences, developmental processes, diversity appreciation, effective instruction, evidence-based decision making, research and program evaluation and technological applications.

Four different areas of concentration allow you to specialize in the particular educational segment you want, whether that is helping gifted students, children immigrating to a new country or the general student population. And with campuses in eight countries and on four continents, Webster promotes a unique awareness of the cultural backgrounds and individual differences of all students, making you a more empathic and astute professional.
