Developmental Psychology

Department of Psychology, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

The focus of Developmental Psychology is the study of the theory, research, and applied interventions associated with the way humans develop and change over time. This focus is especially significant for anyone interested in how we might solve the challenges presented by life. These include the special challenges presented by schooling, parenting, socialization within and beyond the family, coping with stress, and some of the individual differences and atypical behaviors exhibited by ourselves or others. This program of study is designed as a complement to a significant number of Major specializations, suitable for any student wishing to broaden their knowledge beyond their Major area of study.
