Marc Schulz

Marc Schulz is a Professor of Psychology at Bryn Mawr College and the Associate Director
of the Harvard Study of Adult Development (HSAD), one of the longest longitudinal studies
of human thriving ever done. Since the 1930s, HSAD has followed the development of 724
men and their families from adolescence through the end of life. More recently, we have
been working with more than 1,300 of the daughters and sons of these original participants
to understand how early life experiences shape midlife health and happiness.

At Bryn Mawr, Dr. Schulz served as Chair of Psychology from 2014-2020 and Director of the
graduate Ph.D. program in Clinical Developmental Psychology from 2005-2020. He has
been recognized repeatedly by Bryn Mawr for his teaching, research and contributions to
the broader community. Dr. Schulz has held appointments as a visiting scholar at
universities in Switzerland and Portugal, and consulted widely on scientific issues.

He received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of California at Berkeley
and completed a clinical internship and clinical and research postdoctoral fellowships at
Harvard Medical School.
