In Educational Psychology, graduate students have the freedom to construct unique research projects leading to the Ph.D. with multiple advisers across multiple departments.

We have researchers interested in school safety and bullying, in early mathematics learning, and in the role of the home environment, stress, and motivation in learning.

Our faculty explores learning across the lifespan and cognitive aging; learning and cognition in health care; science and math learning, problem solving and the nature of expertise in science; and language learning and comprehension.

Our faculty explore a range of topics related to health and well-being across the lifespan including bullying prevention and intervention with youth, vocational interests and how they change over time, and racial and ethnic identity.

We are a concentration within the College of Education's Learning and Educational Studies major which will provide a rich interdisciplinary education in the cognitive science of learning that will prepare undergraduate students for graduate school or careers in education, business, medicine, or other professions.
