What Should the Topic of My Doctoral Project Be to Fit in the Program?
The doctoral projects deal with topics related to the study of systematic changes in human behavior over evolutionary and ontogenetic time. The general approach is aimed at advancing the behavioral and social science of human development. LIFE takes an integrative and interdisciplinary approach to understanding human development in a changing world, connecting evolutionary, ontogenetic, historical, and institutional perspectives. The focus is on the evolution and interaction of individual and institutional development. See also LIFE Program. Also take a look at the Berlin, Michigan, Viriginia, and Zurich faculty members' websites for more information on their work and projects (see Faculty).
