Online Educational Psychology Degrees and Programs

Without a doubt, educational psychology is one of the most facinating fields of psychology. It is the science of understanding why, when, where and how people learn. In essence, educational psychology attempts to understand why people do the things they do. It is this challenge of discovering and understanding why and how people learn that makes a career in educational psychology so rewarding. Educational psychologists may be involved in advanced research projects that lead to amazing new discoveries about motivation, human intelligence and how the brain works. Or a career in educational psychology may involve working directly with students with developmental disabilities. Regardless of which career path you choose, you'll find a career in educational psychology to be one of the most interesting and intellectually stimulating fields of applied psychology you can be involved in.

Individuals pursuing career opportunities in educational psychology typically have a graduate degree in psychology. The requirements for becoming an educational psychologist are similar to those for other specialized psychology fields. First, you need to earn a bachelor's degree in Psychology or a related field such as Education, Statistics, Child Development, etc. Once you've obtained a bachelor's degree, there three types of graduate degrees in educational psychology you can consider. The first, and the easiest, is a master's in education psychology (MEd). Or you can obtain a Doctorate in Education (EdD) or Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) in psychology. There is also a Doctorate of Psychology (PsyD) degree that will qualify you for a career in educational psychology.
