The mission of the Hunter College Educational Psychology Program is to advance understanding and generate knowledge of human learning, development, and motivation, and to develop a solid foundation of research, measurement, assessment, program evaluation, and applied statistics in educational settings and related fields.
This program provides a foundation of research, measurement, assessment, program evaluation and applied statistics for educational settings and related fields through two concentrations of study:
(1) General Educational Psychology; and
(2) Assessment, Research and Evaluation.
It is designed for students with no prior experience in education as well as those who have a background in education and want to expand their skills and knowledge. Students in this program may use the degree as a bridge to a doctoral program in Educational Psychology or a related discipline; or to prepare professional careers in program evaluation; institutional research; assessment-measurement and testing; and instruction an curriculum development in public and private institutions.
