Overview

Educational Psychology allows us to better understand and improve the ways we teach and learn. This minor will provide you with an understanding of core topics within the discipline, including: 

  • The study of learning, cognition, and teaching in a variety of educational settings 
  • Technology and computers as learning tools 
  • Cognitive and social processes in learning 
  • Evaluation and enhancement of learning and teaching 
  • Fostering inclusive education 
  • The relationship between education and human development  
  • The impact of family and community on children’s learning and development 

While the field is based in psychology and education, it is connected to many other subjects like the health sciences, neuroscience, computer science, social work, policy, and law. 


Careers

After completing a Minor in Educational Psychology, you may want to go to graduate school to become a psychologist or researcher. You can also pursue a second degree in Education and teach in elementary or high school. The skills and knowledge you develop will prepare you for work after graduation in areas like community organizing, mental health advocacy, advising, and more.
