Master description

The master's degree in Educational Psychology covers one academic year in which students take 60 ECTS. The master's degree is organised in two specialisations that are directly related to its context of intervention:
 
  • Specialisation in Formal Education
  • Specialisation in Non-formal Education
 
Students take four compulsory modules in both specialisations: two modules to give a grounding in educational psychology ("Diversity and the Curriculum" and "Educational Needs Analysis") which study processes of educational psychology in inclusive education, diagnosis and assessment processes, and counselling models, one module devoted to the external work placement and one module for the Master Thesis.
 
Additionally, students take two compulsory modules within each specialisation and an optional one chosen from the two that are offered: "Management and Educational Psychology Services" and "Educational Psychology in Organisations".
