Concentration in Educational Psychology

The Educational Psychology concentration provides the student with specific knowledge related to special needs and educational advocacy, in addition to child, adolescent, and family needs. Providing a solid foundation for those who want to pursue a master’s degree in education, this concentration also creates diversity for those who are interested in having specializations or degrees in two fields, rather than simply an undergraduate education degree. Potential positions include social service positions in the school system, child welfare, and educational aides.
