Welcome to the homepage of the Ph.D. program in Developmental Psychology! Our program is designed to expose students to a comprehensive analysis of the theories and research that constitute Developmental Psychology by promoting an understanding of basic developmental and applied developmental problems, as well as basic research findings and theories concerning all aspects of development. This, plus the learning of a variety of research methodologies, is considered essential to success in the constantly changing world of Developmental Psychology.

The Developmental Psychology program was formed within the Psychology Department in the late 1970s and has grown steadily since then. Recently, our program was ranked 9th in the nation on student outcomes by the National Research Council (NRC). We have seven core faculty members in Developmental Psychology, specializing in development between infancy and adolescence. Our faculty’s focus is on social development (e.g., aggression and violence, identity development in minority youth, effects of extracurricular participation, stereotype development, parenting), and cognitive development (e.g., second language acquisition, memory and attention development, participation in Head Start). Please enjoy your time at our site, and I encourage you to contact me should you have any questions.
