Educational Psychology M.A.

Educational Psychology M.A.

Upon meeting the admission criteria for the Graduate School, the candidate's application is forwarded to the program area faculty for review. Applications are processed as they are received. Decisions regarding admission are communicated to the applicant before the beginning of the next semester. Although students may enroll any semester following admission, they are strongly encouraged to begin their program in either the summer or fall term in order to enter the proper sequencing of courses. Applications require a description of educationally-related work experience, statement of interest and career goals, three letters of reference, and GRE scores should be submitted if available, but are not required.

Applications are evaluated case by case according to the following preferred guidelines:

  • GPA of 3.0 in the last 60 semester hours of academic work.
  • Three letters of recommendation indicating a high potential for academic success.
  • Congruency between the applicant's career goals and the purpose of the M.A. program as indicated by the letter of interest.
  • Educationally-related work experience is desirable, but not required.
