Our interdisciplinary faculty engages in applied developmental science that situates in the areas below. Students who work with us develop expertise and skills in at least one of these areas:

The department offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Each of these programs is designed to help graduate students integrate developmental research and theory with understanding or modeling effective practice, and each offers opportunities for working with children and youth and conducting research.
