Recipients

Students who are in possession of a Bachelor's or Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Pedagogy and Psychopedagogy may enroll in the University Master's Degree in Educational Psychology.

Why study this master?

The general objective of this University Master's Degree is to train three specific functions: a) the evaluators; b) advisory services; and c) intervention, both corrective and above all preventive and optimizing.

Regarding the evaluative function, it should be noted that its objective is both to detect possible personal dysfunctions and more typical problems in educational contexts: social climate, curricular, motivational ... As regards psychological counseling, these have to go to students, parents, teachers and academic authorities.

Finally, with regard to interventions, they can be corrective or rehabilitative, as when we encounter typical problems in the teaching and learning contexts and the educational psychologist is required to intervene professionally. It must also intervene, taking into account the triple perspective of prevention: primary, secondary and tertiary. Likewise, they must be able to intervene in the improvement of the various teaching and learning processes (improvement of performance, social skills, etc.).
