Master of Education in Human Development (MCHD)

This program, offered by the Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology, University of Maryland, focuses on theory and contemporary educational research related to child and adolescent social, cognitive, emotional, and physical development, and the translation of that research into principles of instructional practice that positively influence students' academic achievement, motivation to achieve, and school adjustment in school settings. There is a strong programmatic emphasis on diversity and the impact of individual differences on predicted outcomes. The program employs a cohort model, with new cohorts beginning every fall, and is designed to be completed in five continuous semesters.
