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.

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.
