University of Minnesota, Institute of Child Development

The Institute of Child Development (ICD) has long been a premier center for scholarship, teaching, and engagement in developmental psychology. Coursework and research activities focus on the cognitive, perceptual, social, emotional, cultural, and psychobiological/neuroscience processes underlying the development of infants, children, adolescents, and adults. In addition to our Developmental Science program, ICD collaborates with the Department of Psychology to offer a specialty doctoral track in Developmental Psychopathology and Clinical Science.

Founded in 1925 and now located in a new, state-of-the-art research and teaching facility, the Institute is a pre-eminent department for the study of children’s development in the United States, including a top-ranked doctoral program in developmental psychology.  From its inception, a key tenet of the department has been to “give away” developmental science. This philosophy has created an environment rich with collaborations, new ideas, and exciting interdisciplinary work.  Please visit our website at:
