    Hey! I'm graduating I'm December and our handbook says we need developmental psychology to graduate. We needed it to start the program actually. I took child psychology and it transferred from another institution and I'm obviously supposed to graduate in December. My question is... Is child psychology and developmental psychology the same??

    I'd call your school and ask them. If all you had was child psychology, you may have to take another psychology that includes adult psychology as well.

    No, they are not the same thing. Developmental psychology covers development of humans throughout the life span. Child psychology deals with a broad array of topics specifically having to do with kids.

    But...that doesn't mean your school won't accept it as an equivalent. The best place to go is to your advisor

    Thanks y'all!! They finally got back to me. They accepted it as an equivalent :-)
