Congratulations to Wyntre Stout (graduate student in the Cognitive Development Lab) and Clare van Norden (graduate student in the Emotional Development Lab) for passing their general examinations and officially becoming Ph.D. candidates!
At the beginning of their third year, in preparation for their dissertation, graduate students in the developmental psychology program undertake an examination based on a reading list centered on developmental psychology. The reading list is compiled by faculty and is designed to provide a broad expertise in all areas relevant to development psychologists. Students are provided one week to write essays on three questions. Passing the general examination is an important milestone in a graduate student’s career, and we are excited for Clare and Wyntre for reaching that milestone!
