Human have two modalities, namely physical and psychological. These two modalities are changing with the growth and development of the individual. As a result of these changes, cognitive, affective and psychomotor aspects of the individual progressed to maturity. Psychology explains these changes in the study of developmental psychology, which studies the growth and development of humans from birth to old age. The development of individual behaviour from infancy to old age is described thoroughly in developmental psychology, thus knowledge of developmental principles becomes a basis for making policies or rules relating to humans. These principles have long been applied in education, such as educational planning which is based on the talents, skills and intelligence of children). This predictive ability can be utilized to perform development programs that fit the stages of development. The principle of developmental psychology also affirms that the mental aspects of human beings develop in line with individual changes; to direct such changes the role of educational institutions is very important. This study seeks to find out some basic psychological modalities that are very important and play a role in citizenship characters development. Those modalities will affect whether a country will progress or fail. Subject of this study are 308 college students. Results shows that 71% of the students have a mild citizenship character, and 29% have a high citizenship character.
