Educational Psychology Overview

The Department of Educational Psychology offers two undergraduate programs in Health and Human Development and Family Studies.

Coursework in the Human Development and Family Studies program trains students both to understand the conceptual base of theories, applied research, and methods of psychology and to apply those fields of study to the processes of education and human development in practica and internships. Students in the Human Development and Family Studies Program may also choose coursework leading to certification in Early Childhood through Sixth Grade (EC-6) and Special Education as well as to pursue the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Certificate (formerly American Humanics).

The department emphasizes a prevention, intervention, and consultation approach that encourages students to develop skills that respond to the unique assessment, academic, and social needs of individuals in a variety of settings.
