Are you keen on improving the attention given to individuals and their needs within our current society? The official master's degree in Educational Psychology prepares you to work with people from an interdisciplinary perspective with the aim of improving the needs detected in formal and non-formal educational contexts. 

Do you like working with children, young people and adults in risk of social exclusion? This master's degree will allow you to diagnose and evaluate their needs to help find the most adequate inclusion processes.

We have years of experience in the field; the UAB was the first university to offer courses in Educational Psychology.

At the UAB, you will also find research groups that are directly connected with the field of education psychology and related contexts.
