College Students on CampusHave you thought about going to graduate school for one of the many fields related to Developmental Science?  

Join us for a free day-long program designed to help students of color prepare for and succeed in graduate school.

Developmental Science focuses on the processes that underlie human development across the lifespan and what we can do to promote optimal development and avoid negative outcomes.  Developmental Scientists earn degrees in a variety of fields that include Psychology, Education, Sociology, Public Health, Nursing, Social Work, Human Development and Family Studies, Child and Maternal Health and many others.

If you are interested in graduate studies in any of these fields, join us for our program on preparing for graduate school on FRIDAY, MARCH 4th from 10:00-5:00 at the Center for Developmental Science on the UNC-CH campus.  Although the program is free, registration is required.  To register, follow this link.
