The Department of Educational Psychology consists of four areas (Applied Cognition and Development, Gifted and Creative Education, Quantitative Methodology, and School Psychology), which provide depth and flexibility to become an expert in the field.

Offered through the College of Education, the University of Georgia’s online Ed.S. in Educational Psychology, Gifted and Creative Education is based on the philosophy that giftedness and creativity are expressed in diverse ways among diverse people; that creativity is a universal potential to be nurtured and enhanced; and that the best education is tailored to students’ specific needs and interests for talent development. This philosophy will be expressed through a focus on instruction, research, and service. The Ed.S. program requires a minimum of 31 semester hours of coursework and a final written comprehensive examination.  After taking the first four courses, students in this program qualify for the Gifted In-Field Endorsement for the State of Georgia.  Those who graduate from this program may assume a variety of roles including those of college or university professor, classroom teacher, coordinator of school system programs, coordinator in state departments of education, or educational consultant.
