Educational Psychology and Research


Educational Psychology and Research (EPR) is a service program within the UAB School of Education.

At the undergraduate level, we provide courses in Psychological Foundations and Measurement and Evaluation that are necessary for all prospective teachers to complete an undergraduate teaching degree. We also house the undergraduate Introduction to Statistics that serves both the Physical Education and Exercise Science programs.

At the graduate level, we provide Educational Psychology courses that meet the program requirements for graduate teacher certification programs as well as courses taken for recertification and electives for other programs. We also house the research and statistics courses that are requirements for the three doctoral programs within the School of Education. These courses also attract graduate students from schools outside the School of Education such as Nursing, Public Health, and the School of Health Related Professions, to mention a few.  Additionally, we serve numerous Masters and Educational Specialists degree programs with courses needed to complete these degrees as well.
