Department of Educational Psychology and Foundations of Education
ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
A teacher education programme worth its salt takes cognizance of the foundational and psychological aspects through which education becomes meaningful. Inspired by the words of John Dewey, “Education is a social process, growth and not preparation for life but is life itself,” the Department of Educational Psychology and Foundations of Mount Kenya University adopts a value-addition approach in training educators who are not only knowledgeable but will respond adequately the diverse learning needs of their students. The department thus, plays a key role in the actualization of Kenya’s Vision 2030.In responding to the emerging educational needs, the Department of Educational Psychology and Foundations in the School of Education of Mount Kenya University offers a diverse curriculum for Masters and PhD by course work, examination and thesis in Educational Psychology, Guidance and Counselling, Educational Counselling Psychology and Sociology of Education. This curriculum comes at a time when there is a large untapped reservoir of trained teachers who are seeking opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills base in these areas of specialization and is guided by the principles of marketability, competitiveness, relevance and academic values.
