UMBC Graduate School

The University of Maryland is looking for qualified applicants for their Applied Developmental Psychology (ADP) program. In addition to getting a solid foundation in developmental theories and processes, students can emphasize one of three contexts of inquiry: Early Development/Early Intervention, Socioemotional Development of Children, or Educational Contexts of Development. Graduates of the program will have the knowledge and skill to conduct research and work in jobs focused on child, family, and school well-being, particularly in inner-city, lower-income, cultural minority and cross-cultural contexts. Graduates have taken jobs in traditional academic settings and worked in more applied settings conducting evaluations of programs, analyzing public polices, and designing interventions for children and their families.
