Developmental Science

Our graduate program aims to provide a multidisciplinary research and training experience that covers interacting topics including: biological, neural, perceptual, cognitive, affective/emotional, and contextual influences on development. This experience may also include advanced training in statistics and methodologies, including cognitive/affective neuroscience methods and various applied techniques.

The Developmental Science area makes every effort to provide graduate students in all specializations with financial support for four years. The support takes the form of teaching assistantships, research assistantships, or fellowships, and carries a tuition waiver and other benefits.
