Full standing is normally granted to those applicants who have successfully completed an undergraduate degree and have adequate background in learning and development-related courses in Psychology, Anthropology, Education, and/or related disciplines (e.g., Social and/or Health Sciences). A thesis is required.
Students with no previous coursework on research methods prior to starting an M.A. in HDLC will be required to take prerequisite courses: EPSE 481 (3) Introduction to Research in Education and EPSE 482 (3) Introduction to Statistics for Research in Education. These courses should be taken early in your degree, and do not count toward fulfilling your program credit requirements.
