Group of students in a group study session


Our faculty are leaders in their fields, with wide-ranging interests and active research programs in the areas of human development and the psychology of child, adolescent and adult learning across the lifespan.

As a result, student engagement in faculty research labs yields very high success rates in securing external student awards and funding. This year we are looking forward to developing large-scale international projects that address the emerging issues concerning mental health, well-being and education.
