In Applied Cognition and Development, 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 prepare graduates to improve education through research, to implement projects in schools, and to apply research and methods to various settings.

Students study with faculty experts in topics including reading development and vocabulary, mathematics, cultural influences on achievement, early intervention, and technology-enhanced learning.

Our faculty are active in state and national organizations. Some members have held esteemed positions including dean of the College of Education, editor of the Journal of Research in Childhood Education, and president of the Educational Psychology division of the American Psychological Association.
