“I chose OSU because it has an innovating, rigorous, and well-known educational psychology program with leading faculty in the field who support their students with genuine funding, teaching, and research opportunities. I truly believe the educational psychology program at OSU provided me with the challenging academic practices of a prestigious university, combined with the one-on-one care and commitment of a small private school. I love and appreciate all of the experiences that OSU, EHA, and the EPSY program have afforded me, and I feel well prepared to begin my career!"
“I had received my undergraduate degree from Oklahoma State and thought I should look elsewhere for my graduate degree. However, when I met with Dr. Yough and learned of the class opportunities with the OSU Educational Psychology program, I knew it was a good fit for me. The online program is supportive of my full-time position as an Oklahoma fifth grade teacher, and the information that I have learned thus far has already been of great value to me. I have "met" many wonderful people within this program and look forward to the continued learning I will receive.”
“I chose the OSU educational psychology program based on both content and faculty. I am a nationally licensed school psychologist, but I wanted to broaden my studies beyond my discipline. I chose to pursue a Ph.D. in educational psychology because I believed the developmental and motivational focus of the program would expand my existing knowledge base and skill set. Further, as my dissertation and career goals involve online learning, I was both interested in, and impressed by, Dr. Jane Vogler’s research analyzing online student discourse.”
“I chose OSU because of the opportunities I would have to do what I love! I was looking for an environment that would allow me to continually push me as a student and propel me forward for my future career endeavors. I have no doubt attending OSU will set up for success as I continue on with my coursework. I am glad I chose OSU!”
