What is it like?

To understand learning in the social setting of formal education, we must also understand the psychological concepts behind learning and social interaction. The Diploma in Arts (Educational Psychology) draws on knowledge from both Psychology and Education to introduce new ways of thinking about learning and development in educational settings. It addresses the topics of educational interventions, learning and motivation, behaviour modification, and special education.

Massey is ranked in the world’s top 150 universities for education in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking.
