The goal of the Ph.D. Program in Educational Psychology at the CUNY Graduate Center is to develop students who will improve policy and practice in education and related fields. Students will be able to conduct basic and applied research, critically analyze the processes of learning and education, develop and evaluate instructional methods, and formulate educational policies and programs.
The mission of the Educational Psychology doctoral program is to provide a broad-based education to doctoral students in two specializations: (1) Learning, Development, and Instruction, and (2) Quantitative Methods & Educational Policy Analysis. Within the discipline of Educational Psychology, these concentrations represent the most important and core areas of the field. Moreover, all students have course requirements in both areas. In accord with our strong research orientation, all students are mentored in the areas of research design, applied statistics, and psychometrics. Students apply these skills in complex urban environments with diverse populations.
