About the School of Educational Sciences and Psychology
Expertise in the fields of education and psychology
Key figures 2017
The School of Educational Sciences and Psychology combines the competences of adult education, education, special pedagogy, psychology and counselling. The key of our operation is formed by the basic and postgraduate education of experts in these fields and related research.
Our school is also an important social expert, operator and developer regionally, nationally and internationally.
The School of Educational Sciences and Psychology organises education in psychology, education, adult education, special pedagogy and counselling. In addition, we also organise training that leads to the qualification of special education teachers, career counsellors and psychologists. Our school also offers minor subject education in these disciplines and separate qualifying studies to be completed after degree studies, such as the Certificate Programme for Kindergarten Special Education Teachers, the Certificate Programme for Special Education Teachers and Qualification Studies for Career Counsellors.
In addition, our school organises Pedagogical Studies in Adult Education for those students at the University of Eastern Finland whose major subject grants them the qualification to teach primarily in settings beyond basic education, i.e., the studies in their major subject are targeted at duties in an upper secondary school, vocational education (general subjects) and adult education (academic subjects related to education, society and business and the law, for example).
