Curriculum on Developmental Psychology and Educational Research

This doctoral program provides research expertise in educational settings and developmental psychology. With regard to educational research, the goal is to carry out research projects related to education (vocational training and apprenticeships), teachers training, educational policies. With regard to research in the field of developmental psychology, the goal is to provide advanced knowledge of the methods and techniques of research in developmental psychology.

Students will learn the ability to plan, define and develop research in the study of different biological, social, and cultural aspects related to the development of children and adolescents, with special attention to the development of social skills, cognitive and emotional. Furthermore the doctoral program provides a specialized training within an innovative and interdisciplinary perspective that refers to a cultural, post-modern, socio-constructionist psychology. Psychological processes are considered as emergent products of social and discursive interaction among participants in specific socio-cultural systems of everyday activity (such as families, workplaces, educational settings).
