Become a researcher at the highest level through our personalized program, which offers four areas of emphasis.
Our graduate students are known across the country for their cutting-edge research. Study in the fields of assessment and quantitative methodology, or take advantage of our partnership with the Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development, a leader in creative education. Become a scholar of the cognitive process within learning environments as you connect research to real-world issues in education, or you may choose to become a skilled psychologist at all levels of child development.
As a student, you will have many opportunities for research, both with an experienced faculty member and on your own projects. Our graduate students present their findings at conferences across the country and internationally, and each year top lists for awards and accolades recognizing their work.
Follow the philosophy that giftedness and creativity are expressed in diverse ways among diverse people, that creativity is a universal potential to be nurtured and enhanced, and that the best education is tailored to student's specific needs for talent development.
This emphasis includes a focus on instruction, research, and service.
