Ph.D. Program in Educational Psychology


The Ph.D. Program in Educational Psychology is designed to educate students to conduct basic and applied research, to analyze critically the process of education, to develop and evaluate instructional methods and techniques, and to formulate educational policies and programs.

In accord with our strong research orientation, all students are well trained in the areas of research design, applied statistics, and psychometrics. Our faculty, an internationally recognized group of empirical researchers, work closely with students for one-on-one advisement. Graduates from the program have taken academic positions as well as positions in city, state, and national departments of education, in curriculum development programs, and in research development centers in education.
