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.
Please note that the Diploma in Arts (Educational Psychology) does not qualify you to be a teacher in New Zealand. If you want to be a teacher, you will also need to take a postgraduate teaching qualification. Please explore your options in our education pathways tool.
