Our mission is to develop leaders in the fields of teaching, learning, human development, and behavior, using observations and experience to support high-quality research. We prepare educational researchers, theorists, and practitioners as we work to serve diverse populations. Our department is made of four interconnected areas of emphasis: applied cognition and development, gifted and creative education, quantitative methodology, and school psychology.
In the Applied Cognition and Development Program, educational psychologists explore the effect of human cognitive and developmental processes on education. They also determine how that knowledge can be applied to teaching and learning. Our programs prepares graduates to improve education through research, to implement projects in schools, and to apply research and methods to various settings.
The Gifted and Creative Education Program philosophy is grounded in tenets that giftedness and creativity are expressed in diverse ways among people; that creativity is a universal potential to be nurtured and enhanced; and that the best education is tailored to student’s specific needs. This includes a focus on instruction, research, and service.
