Graduate Program Psychology, Applied Developmental
Program Description The Applied Developmental Psychology Program reflects the intersection of developmental psychology and applied science by considering questions of developmental import within the social context of children’s everyday lives. Graduates of the program will have the knowledge and skill to conduct research and work in jobs focused on child, family, and school well-being, particularly in inner-city, lower-income, and cultural minority and cross-cultural contexts. Graduates have taken positions teaching and conducting research at universities, analyzing public policy, working in hospital settings conducting evaluations of infants, toddlers and children as well as designing interventions for children and their families.

In consultation with their mentor, students enrolled in the program develop a program of course work, research and practicum experiences tailored to the demands of their particular career aspirations.
