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
