Students in the Developmental Psychology program are exposed to a variety of methods for studying the minds and behaviours of infants and children. They conduct hands-on research in collaboration with other students and faculty members, and have the opportunity to present this research through various outlets.
We offer two programs in the Developmental Area:
- PhD program in Developmental Psychology,
- Master of Applied Science (MASc) Program in Developmental & Communication Science (DCS).
The Developmental Psychology graduate program has a strong focus on cognitive, social-cognitive, and language development in infancy and childhood, periods of rapid developmental change. We use a range of experimental methods to produce cutting edge research that creatively explores the minds of some of the most fascinating humans.
