Welcome to the Developmental Psychology Graduate Program at the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Our program is geared towards students who are driven by intrinsic motivation and curiosity about developmental phenomena.
The Ph.D. program in Psychology is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and judgment needed to become active contributors at the highest-level to research, teach, and provide public and professional service in the community.
The Developmental Psychology doctoral program maintains a flexible curriculum to help students become scientists, with an explicit understanding that each student’s preparation is likely to be unique. Learn more about our application process and curriculum.
