About the Department

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

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 have researchers interested in self-regulation and goal setting and achievement, in early mathematics learning, and in the role of the home, school, and neighborhood contexts in development, motivation, and learning.
