Most students do not take any courses in their 2nd year of the program but must confirm their status as graduate students and enroll in the Thesis courses listed below seeking to fulfill 12 credits per term. Some students have conditions of admission which may require them to complete EDPE 575 - Educational Measurement in the first year, as such, they will be required to take EDPE 676 - Intermediate Statistics in the Fall and EDPE 682 - Univariate/Multivariate Statistics in the Winter of their second year of the program. Again, students should meet with their supervisors to review course selection before the start of term.

The following Thesis Courses must be completed during your two-years of study:

EDPE 604 - Thesis 1 - Fall CRN 2739 OR Winter CRN 2432 (3 credits)
EDPE 607 - Thesis 2 - Fall CRN 2740 OR Winter CRN 2434 (3 credits)

EDPE 696 - Thesis 6 - Fall CRN 2759 OR Winter CRN 2457 (6 credits)

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.
