Masters in Educational Psychology

Your curriculum when earning this degree will combine training in child development and mental health assessment and treatment. With your teaching background, you will also learn to work effectively with students and their parents as well as communicate with other teachers. A bachelor’s degree with a 3.0 or higher is generally a prerequisite of acceptance into a Masters in Educational Psychology program. The completion of 60 credit hours and 1,200 hours of hands-on training is required by the National Association of School Psychologists. Your graduate-level courses will include developmental psychology, motivation and learning theories, educational research methods, and diverse population counseling.

While hands-on experience is required to completely fulfill the degree requirements, you can complete much of the coursework required to complete Educational Psychology Master’s Programs online. This option has been growing in popularity since its inception. When you take online classes, you form your completion of projects around your own schedule and timeframe. Take as little as two years to complete a program or extend it to several years if you want to teach in order to gain experience and make a living at the same time. Generally, courses offered online will be less expensive than traditional classroom courses.

Based on what the US Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported, the employment outlook for educational psychologists from 2008 to 2018 is fairly good. The increase in job availability is expected to increase 12% within those ten years. Jobs in clinical, counseling and educational positions are rising a bit slower. Also, in 2009, school counselors and educational psychologists made an average of $72,000 per year. Licensure is required to fill any educational psychology positions. You might also choose to continue on to earn your doctorate degree and qualify for research positions.
