Developmental and child psychology is the 266th most popular degree in America, with 570 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #267 Painting, and narrowly lost to #265 Educational Administration and Supervision.

The degree is offered at a total of 35 colleges across the nation, and is the 318th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 2% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that hardly over 2 out of 7 colleges offering developmental and child psychology are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The far west produces the most developmental and child psychology graduates, largely led by University of California-San Diego, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Minnesota ranks highest, with particular help from Metropolitan State University and University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

All that being said, no individual school produces more developmental and child psychology graduates than Henderson State University, which graduated 73 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study developmental and child psychology). More students studied developmental and child psychology as a percentage of total students at Emmanuel College than any other college.
