- by SDifalco86 Mar 17Hey! 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??

- Mar 17 by aubgurlI'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.
- Mar 17 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
- Mar 18 by SDifalco86Thanks y'all!! They finally got back to me. They accepted it as an equivalent :-)
