Program Requirements

The aim of the M.Ed. in Educational Psychology (Non-Thesis) - Inclusive Education is to educate students on the major theories and practices of inclusive education. The program’s focus is on diversity in development behavior and attainment, and eco-systemic and cultural models of teaching, learning, and assessment. Similar approaches are taken to understand disability. Graduates will be able to implement effective teaching programs for students across all spectrums of development. Students will develop a strong foundation in the core content and theories of development, disability, inclusion, and methods. The role of schools and communities is also examined. Students will be trained in application and practice through behaviour, literacy assessment and intervention, differentiated teaching planning objectives, and the completion of a Research Project.
