Welcome to the Center on Media and Human Development. The Center on Media and Human Development was created as a center with three primary goals: training, research, and public policy outreach. The Center is dedicated to training future researchers to conduct research in the field of human development and media.
The Center on Media and Human Development is directed by Ellen Wartella. Postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers work together to explore and answer a variety of research questions in order to better understand the effects and role of media on infants, children, and adolescents.
