What current students are saying:
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
To me, Developmental Science is the interdisciplinary study of human development, from conception to death. It includes the fields of psychology, sociology, physiology, biology, preventative science and more, all set within social and family contexts to explore what makes you “you.” -Franchesca Cortez
