Psychological Studies in Education (PSE)

Learning and education are lifelong processes. In the Department of Psychological Studies in Education (PSE), we believe that learning and education can be enhanced through the application of psychological knowledge to teaching, curriculum development, and learning in the service of families, groups and organizations, and mental health.

Our faculty is committed to furthering theoretical understanding, but in such a way that new knowledge can be used. The true measure of scholarly work is its impact on the lives to those who are not scholars, in its applicability to situations, difficulties, and opportunities encountered by teachers, students, and families every day. PSE is concerned with elementary and secondary teacher preparation, as well as with the training of professionals who develop and disseminate knowledge - educational researchers, consultants, and practitioners, as well as those who teach in higher education. We also prepare professional psychologists for work in prevention, teaching, research, remediation, counseling, and consulting.
