Learning & Development Sciences

Master of Science in Education


Earning an M.S.Ed. in Learning and Developmental Sciences will teach you to understand how people of all ages learn, both in and out of school.

Some of the questions our faculty pursue are: What are the best strategies for ensuring that students excel in science, math, and technology? How can we better leverage digital media to create innovative environments for learning that both excites learners and deepens understanding? How can we better understand interest-driven learning spaces where learning seems to flow “naturally,” and how can we use these approaches to transform education? What do our hobbies indicate about the ways we learn most effectively?

This 36-hour program is available in three tracks: the Learning Sciences track, the Educational Psychology track, and the Human Development track.
