The Department offers degree programs for undergraduates and graduate students who seek to enter the fields of education, behavioral science and human services. It also offers a doctoral program in Applied Developmental Science. In addition to providing students with experience in its laboratory school, curriculum lab, and other on-campus facilities, it places importance on the practice of field work with children in a wide range of settings. The department attracts researchers from around the world, while also maintaining a focus on serving families of young children in the greater Boston area.
