Academic Departments

Academics at the GSE is organized around three departments, each offering four academic programs. The three academic chairs of educational psychology, educational theory, policy, and administration, learning and teaching, and the Office of the Dean administer academic matters in the Graduate School of Education. Current and potential students as well as alumni should contact the respective department administrator in any of the three departments to gain information and direction regarding programs, application, and academic questions specific to a course or program. The  Office of Student and Academic Services provides additional and more general administrative and student counseling support for the students of these departments.

Educational Psychology

The Department of Educational Psychology  focuses on expanding knowledge in education and psychology and forging a link between these areas. Through our work, psychology is applied to the concerns of education, which, in turn, informs the development of new psychology.
