Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Education
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Educational Psychology
Description Welcome! It is my distinct pleasure to introduce you to our M.Ed. program in Educational Psychology. The MEd and its three active Concentrations (described below) share a focus on the impact of education on learners’ success in a variety of contexts. Our creative and multitalented MEd graduates have been positively impacting diverse communities of learners for nearly 40 years! We value the school and community connections our students bring and are committed to offering a program that allows our students to enhance their skills while maintaining these important links. We strive to offer a supportive and collegial environment in which students are supported in their quest to develop applied and research skills that are associated with best practices in applying psychological knowledge to education in its broadest sense as well as schooling, and especially to promoting success among learners. The MEd program is designed to provide students with an appropriate foundation through course work, with opportunities to apply skills and theories though a variety of field placements, and with the possibility of delving further into an area of interest through research or curricular-development activities. The MEd can be completed on a full-time basis in 2 years or on a part-time basis over 3 to 5 years. Most of our courses are offered in the evening to accommodate students who are working during the day. Although many of MEd students have a teaching degree, a significant proportion of our students hold degrees in psychology, sociology, the health sciences, or other related disciplines.
