The online Learning & Cognition (L&C) MS degree program is designed for students and professionals interested in learning, cognition, development and group processes in a variety of contexts, such as the classroom at any level, government, private enterprise, nonprofits, and other organizational settings. The purpose of the program is to produce graduates who have knowledge of a wide range of theories applicable to learning and cognition processes, insights into ways to effectively support human learning, and skills to critically read and evaluate research on learning. Those interested in research positions or pursuing a PhD are encouraged to complete the thesis track (only available face-to-face) rather than the exam track option.
