MEd in Learning Sciences

Course sequencing

The MEd Learning Sciences Concentration seeks to acquaint students with current theories and research on Teaching and Learning and their application to real-world and designed environments, while exploring other topics of interest in educational psychology. The degree has specific individualized curriculum progression, from required foundational courses to advanced content courses (both practical and research-oriented). These specific sequences were developed based on an evolution of content covered in previous course work. Each semester's offerings build upon topics covered and competencies developed in earlier courses and are crucial to receiving the most meaningful training for successful completion of the degree. Please consult the tables below related the Master of Education (M.Ed.); Educational Psychology (Non-Thesis) — Learning Sciences (48 credits).

Note: To ensure that you are following the correct trajectory of courses, please select the year in which you were first admitted to the program.
