Prospective Graduate Students
The Department of Human Development and Family Studies at Colorado State University provides an excellent environment in which to pursue graduate work. Students can earn a Ph.D. in Applied Developmental Science, and focus their studies in adolescent development, family or peer relationships, or another topic or period of the lifespan. Students can enter our program with either a completed master’s degree or a completed bachelor’s degree. Students entering with their bachelor’s will be required to first complete a Master’s in Prevention Science before moving on to the requirement for the Ph.D. in Applied Developmental Science. Students particularly interested in clinical applications of their research have the option of completing their Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy while en route to the Ph.D.
