Ph.D. in Child Psychology
Our Ph.D. program is designed to train students at the Ph.D. level for research and applied research careers in developmental psychology. Students specialize in an area such as cognitive development, language, learning, executive function, social development, or developmental psychobiology and neuroscience.
There is a strong focus on research throughout the program, and students who find the best fit have a background in research and a strong interest in research at the doctoral level. Most graduates of the program take positions in academic or research settings.
