Our department is home for the study of how people learn and how to help people learn. Much of our work focuses on K–12 schools, but we study education in other contexts as well, including museums and universities. Many of our students are preparing to work in schools - as teachers or as school psychologists; some prepare for careers in museums, and some for careers in education research.
