Welcome to the Department of Educational and Psychological Studies! Intellectual stimulation and cooperation characterize the academic culture within the Department of Educational and Psychological Studies.

Faculty and students create a community of scholars in which respect and professionalism are common goals. From this solid base of mutual support, students are encouraged to take risks to maximize learning.
With a UM degree I feel like I will be able to do more than just be a coach. It gives me a lot more options. The networking is also unbelievable, I have gotten access to front offices and influential sporting people in the industry.
I love the diversity of students, the professors and classes, all of the fun events, the great weather, and the incredible school spirit.
The Campus! Studying on the green, eating at the Rat with friends or simply hanging out by the lake, there's no way you can ever have a bad day at the U!
