Mission of the Fordham University Applied Developmental Psychology Graduate Program:

 

Applied Developmental Psychology is the systematic synthesis of theory, research, and applications to describe, explain, and promote optimal developmental outcomes for individuals and families across the lifespan. It includes the study of psychological, behavioral, and neuropsychological aspects of typical and atypical individual and family functioning.  ADP is a new theoretical perspective that calls psychologists to forge coalitions with families, professionals, and policy makers to promote the health and welfare of our young and old.

 

The mission of the doctoral ADP Program at Fordham University is to educate new generations of scientists who can generate and utilize knowledge about human development in context to address practical problems, eliminate barriers, and promote positive development; thus, students are educated in the theories, research, and methods of applied developmental psychology and related disciplines necessary for the ethical use and sharing of knowledge in research and program development and evaluation for furthering science and enhancing social policy.
