Is anyone here thinking of a career in Educational Psychology?
I'm revising for finals at the moment and took 'psychology in education' as a last minute module choice due to another module's cancellation. What I didn't realise is that it was available to education students as well, so 75% of the course is explaining what statistical significance is and who Piaget is, etc etc. I am tearing my hair out with the sheer lack of stuff there is to learn as have no idea how to even write an essay on any of this.
So, if there are any potential educational psychologists out there, what is it that attracts you to educational psychology as a career? What do you think educational psychology achieves? This isn't meant to be slating educational psychology (I was considering it as a career at one point) but more of a debate, I'm just really interested in what role educational psychology has within Psychology as a discipline.
Give me your opinions!
in a dyslexia unit at a local primary school and found it really interesting. Basically I really find all the sen stuff interesting and also like working with children, plus it would be an excellent way to use my degree practically and possibly do some research
