The master in Educational Psychology (MSc) is particularly aimed at people who are working in education or are interested in pursuing a career as an educator.
The field of Educational Psychology is broadly defined as the study of students, learning, and teaching. Studies in this discipline can enrich the work of those working or wishing to work as teachers in primary, secondary, or higher education by providing the basic theoretical background to guide their teaching with the aim of improving students' learning outcomes and being able to help their students progress academically and personally.
A successful teacher is able to motivate students, successfully manage the classroom, assess students' prior knowledge, successfully communicate ideas, accommodate students' particular needs, develop appropriate teaching methods and use appropriate assessment methods.
Teachers can develop these skills by understanding and applying relevant psychological theories of learning. The master in Educational Psychology (MSc) aims to encourage teachers to see themselves as engaged learners who are constantly looking for and considering better ways to help their students achieve their goals.
