Educational Psychology Programs

Undergraduate, masters and doctoral programs seek to understand how children’s ethnicity, culture, class and gender impact their development and learning.  We seek to understand how children construct notions of morality, fairness, and gender, and how they develop resilience in the face of enduring economical difficulties. As part of this endeavor, we seek to contribute to basic scientific understanding of cognition and cognitive development. We strive to advance knowledge in research methodology to address our research questions in a fair manner.  The department is dedicated to developing and applying fair approaches of measurement, evaluation, statistics and assessment to support such efforts.
