Overview

Master of Arts in Educational Psychology - Learning Sciences

Learning Sciences is an interdisciplinary field that draws primarily on psychological and social theories to study how learning and teaching can be facilitated with and without technology in both formal and informal settings and throughout the lifespan.

The McGill Learning Sciences program places emphasis on four core and interrelated areas: 

Cognition, learning and instruction; Self-regulation, motivation and emotion; Technology rich learning environments; and Social, cultural and historical foundations of learning.

Under the general rubric of Educational Psychology, McGill offers three degrees with a Learning Sciences concentration: M.Ed., M.A., and Ph.D.

These programs attract students from a wide variety of educational backgrounds, including: 

Undergraduate and graduate degrees in Science (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer science, etc.), Education, Arts (Sociology, Psychology, etc.) and Engineering.

The aim of the MA Educational Psychology, Learning Sciences concentration is to produce graduates who:

  • Are broadly trained in educational psychology
  • Have sufficient research competence to critically evaluate research in educational psychology, and to design, conduct and report empirical research
  • Have experience in applying research methods and findings to the solution of practical problems in varied educational settings
