The Master of Science in Educational Psychology program at Texas A&M University-Central Texas, with an emphasis in Experimental Psychology, strives to advance psychological science through teaching, research, and service. Students will engage in experiences that develop psychology-specific knowledge, critical thinking abilities, scientific writing abilities, and statistical analysis skills. Students will be challenged to integrate theory with empirical research in applications that serve others as citizens of a globally connected community.
Our graduates find themselves embarking on fulfilling careers. Students who graduate with the Educational Psychology are prepared for entrance into doctoral programs and research-based fields. Students who do not pursue doctoral work find careers in a variety of fields that require research skills and data-driven decision making, as well as advancement in their current career or role.
This program is research-based and does not offer licensure. Students pursue their own research interests consistent with the scope of the degree plan as they complete a quantitative thesis research project with faculty mentorship. Successful students are open to new ideas and alternative approaches in the field, yet demand empirical evidence to support claims. Those who are interested in obtaining research, rather than counseling skills, in the field of psychology are encouraged to apply for this program.
