What are some colleges that are a good fit for a degree in developmental psychology?
I am a junior in high school and college scouting, but psychology is a degree offered in almost every college and I wanted to know what colleges around Iowa or in the Midwest (but also in the U.S. as a whole) have the best psychology degrees for my focused career.

It doesn't matter what rank the school is in because it's what you make of it. When I was looking into Psychology programs around the country, I first made my search for psychology programs is CA since its close to home. Once the schools popped up, I compared all of them to one another. I compared the class size, tuition, and the Psychology programs faculty, and how easy it was to register for classes in the program. If money isn't a big factor in what school you go to then I wouldn't factor that in but its good to keep the tuition in mind so that you're not in so much debt at the end of your undergraduate. Hope this helps.

Again, there are career paths at the undergraduate level with dev psych driving it like child life specialist, teacher, early education areas. If that's the case then a more focused search. But if its the filed of psychology, then spend your time focusing on what will make you the most successful student you can be, and go there. Graduate school is where you can knock it home. Good luck
