Inside the Program

Flexible program lets students balance life while learning how to improve career

In the Educational Psychology program, you can enhance your existing career or start a new one. As director of a local childcare center, Marissa Harris needed to understand why and how children learn, grow and succeed.

Through the program, Marissa honed all those skills while also working and juggling a growing family, courtesy of a flexible evening class schedule.

"The professors were able to deliver an abundant level of high quality education, while continuing to make school less about how you do on a test and more about making sure students really learn the information."


At Wichita State, students in every major have unmatched opportunities for applied learning and research. As an MEd student, this means you have the option to apply your knowledge in professional settings through a series of eight- to 16-week practicums-helping you build the practical skill-set that employers are looking for. Classes are taught by full-time faculty or administrative staff members.


A graduate degree from Wichita State's College of Applied Studies will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to make a positive impact in the classroom — and on your career.
