Developmental Science at NDSU is an innovative and flexible program with opportunities for both research and teaching with topics in Human Development that span the lifespan in various family, social, and cultural contexts... with research projects locally, regionally, and around the world.

We are a small, student-focused program and our students do great things!

What our students say about Developmental Science:

My definition of Developmental Science is “studies about me, my family and friends, and other people” as we all are developing in a variety of aspects throughout our lives."  -Masahiro Toyama

“The program is rigorous and prepares you well for teaching, research and practice. You learn from great faculty and interact with wonderful students with unique backgrounds.”-Courage Mudzongo

“The program is small enough that students don’t have to compete for research and teaching opportunities, but large enough to have all the resources that give students a comprehensive and personalized education.” -Alison Brennan

“You want to be here because you will not just be another face in a program. You and your success are the focus."-Jennifer Wenner
