The Child Psychology major at Bay Path University is designed for those students primarily interested in working with children, whatever the age: infants, toddlers, preschoolers, school-age, or adolescents. All aspects of development are studied, including physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and moral.


As the family plays a key role in a child’s development, students will explore the areas of parenting and family dynamics. In addition, the powerful impact of the educational system is addressed. During the required senior course Psychology in the Field, students will have the opportunity to explore and network with experts in the field.
