Master of Science in Child and Adolescent Developmental Psychology
The Master of Science in Child and Adolescent Developmental Psychology at Northcentral University helps prepare you for a career with, or advocating for, children, adolescents, and their families. Throughout your studies at the master’s level, you will have an opportunity to take an in-depth look at developmental stages and explore how the impacts of family, school, peers, society, and culture intertwine and affect the development of children and adolescents. The MS in Child and Adolescent Developmental Psychology program seeks to expose students to a deep understanding of physical, cognitive, gender, and socioemotional development that is acquired through critical analysis of research, as well as the theories of development that have arisen from this research. Students will also learn about child and adolescent psychopathology and get an in-depth understanding of ADHD as well as Autism spectrum disorders. Our unique one-to-one learning model provides you with individualized mentoring by our experienced doctoral professors. At the end of the program, an optional internship provides an opportunity to apply classroom studies to real-world situations.
