Cognition, Motivation, and Development Specialization
Today’s education professionals face numerous challenges as they work with students who have complex, diverse backgrounds. Concordia University Irvine’s M.A. in Educational Leadership with specialization in Cognition, Motivation, and Development offers a whole-child approach to fostering all areas of human growth in order for students to be supported physically, academically, behaviorally, and emotionally.
This specialization draws from educational psychology to examine how students develop as human beings, the ways students process and learn, and how motivation can be used as a tool to foster well-rounded citizens. In this program, you will develop an advanced understanding of how students learn and gain a repertoire of instructional skills to help meet individual differences in learning and mitigate challenging issues that your students face.
