Ph.D. in Learning and Developmental Sciences

Specialization in Human Development

The study of human development has practical implications for everything from preschool curriculum development to geriatric care.

As a student in this program you’ll study human development to understand how individuals develop biologically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally and the impact this has throughout their entire life span.

You’ll also conduct independent research, develop your teaching skills, and prepare for a career as a faculty member, institutional researcher, or education consultant.

This 90-credit hour program includes a strong grounding in all of the concepts and theories of human development, plus the opportunity to become an expert in one or more aspects of human development that specifically interest you.
