Program Description

This program is not accepting students at this time.

The faculties in developmental psychology at Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) offer a collaborative approach to graduate training in developmental psychology: the UNC-Duke Collaborative Graduate Certificate Program in Developmental Psychology. Graduate students at Duke in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience and students in UNC's Department of Psychology can apply to this program that offers training opportunities in addition to those of their home department. Students in the certificate program attend developmental talks at both universities and have opportunities to take developmental seminars or engage in supplemental research training with the faculty of their non-home university. Among the research emphases of the participating faculty are cognitive development, social development, applied development and developmental psychobiology. Students apply to the program by the beginning of their third year of graduate study.


Attendance at program-affiliated developmental events and two of the following: a minimum of two courses, at least one member of the developmental faculty of the nonhome institution must serve on one of the candidate's Ph.D. committees, or participation in a research activity with a developmental faculty member from the nonhome university.
