Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Psychology (PhD)

The PhD in Educational Psychology program requires the successful completion of approximately 35-40 credits with individualized course plans developed collaboratively between each student and the program director.


Students will complete required coursework in educational psychology, research and statistics and may choose from areas of specialization including:

  • Applied Behavior Analysis
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy
  • Neuropsychological Assessment
  • Organizational Development and Leadership

As a capstone experience, students must complete a doctoral dissertation—a substantially independent research study of sufficient quality and rigor to have the potential to contribute to the scientific knowledge base.
