Tuition for this program is discounted at $333 per credit and we offer two different tracks in the program. Our Childhood Education track is designed for students who have initial certification in grades 1-6 while our second track gives those students who have initial certification in grades 7-12 a middle school extension.

While the MA in Educational Psychology provides the necessary course requirements for NYS Professional Teacher Certification, students do not need to have Initial Teacher Certification to enter this program. This is a great program for students who work in private schools, at non-profit organizations and also standardized testing agencies.
