What will I learn?

The combined Bachelors-Masters provides a pathway for eligible, highly qualified Miami undergraduate students to concurrently pursue a Baccalaureate and a Master's degree. Also referred to as a 4+1, students who combine their undergraduate and graduate program interests may graduate in five years by combining their programs of study. If pursued separately, these degrees may take 6 years to complete.

The Educational Psychology combined master’s degree program offers a customizable course of study in areas related to Family Science, Psychology and Educational Psychology. Students in the program are allowed to double-count 9 hours of graduate coursework toward their undergraduate degree. They may count the graduate courses toward their major, minor, electives, and university requirements.

Bachelors of Arts: Psychology and Master of Education in Educational Psychology

Concentration: Learning Sciences

The five-year, combined degree program assembles course work from the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (B.A.) with the terminal Masters of Education in Educational Psychology (M.Ed.). This program allows for the completion of both programs, what would typically take about six years of study, into five or fewer years.

Why These Combinations:

Educational psychologists explore questions related to human learning in various contexts and across the lifespan. They are experts in the science behind how people learn. Educational psychologists influence what we know about educational assessment, contexts for teaching & learning, instructional design, brain and human development.

Graduates may be well equipped for careers and continued education such as:

Compiling and analyzing research for social service agencies, nonprofits, or educational institutions

Ascending to upper professional career opportunities and leadership positions in the family and social work arena

Becoming clinical research coordinators, organizational trainers or educational consultants

Pursuing doctoral degrees in educational or other areas of psychology, family science, or related fields
