- 0Mar 17, '13 by SDifalco86Hey! 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??
- 0Mar 17, '13 by StephalumpNo, 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
