The program focuses on the application of psychology to the study of the behavior
of individuals in the roles of teacher and learner, the nature and effects of learning
environments, and the psychological effects of methods, resources, organization, and
non-school experience on the educational process. It includes instruction in learning
theory, human growth and development, research methods, and psychological evaluation.
Students accepted in the program must fulfill the 36 credit hours required or the 30 credit
hours course work in addition to a 6 credit hours thesis. The GPA must remain at a “B”

to repeat the course work. A second failure will result in expulsion from the program.
