With a Ph.D. in Psychology from Walden University, you’ll be better prepared as a researcher, educator, and practitioner to help individuals and groups with family, mental health, career, and educational issues.
Contribute to the field of education through independent, professional research. Deepen your understanding of key psychological theories affecting issues related to the learning experiences of both high achievers and individuals whose needs are more specialized. Explore how to apply these theories to teaching learners across their lifespan and researching student cognition, motivation, and development.
