Minor in Developmental Psychology


The developmental psychology minor is designed to provide students with an understanding of the ways in which humans change over time. Course work provides for a broad foundation in psychology across the lifespan while also allowing for students to focus on a developmental period (e.g. childhood).

For policies governing all minors, see the Undergraduate Policies section of the catalog.


All students have opportunities to

  • conduct independent research
  • engage in globally-related activities through coursework and language study at Mason and abroad
  • participate in many forms of public service
  • prepare for their future careers through internships, career-focused minors and other college-to-career activities
