Learning and cognition and educational technology MA and PhD
Make improvements in education through psychology, science, and technology
As a student in the program, you’ll study the psychological processes critical to education. Research in our program focuses on cognitive development, including high-level cognition and factors shaping and enhancing learning throughout the lifespan. Our faculty and students explore the basic mechanisms of thinking and learning in academic disciplines through precise, controlled laboratory experiments. We also put our research to work—in local schools on programs to improve students' reading, science, and mathematics outcomes as well as informal learning environments.
