About the Human Development Program
The Human Development Program is housed within the School of Social Sciences. The School of Social Sciences offers knowledge and skills that prepare our graduates to live richly rewarding personal, professional, and social lives while understanding and appreciating human complexity in a global society.
Why Major in Human Development?
The Human Development major is designed to provide students with a comprehensive grounding in theoretical approaches to human development across the life span in comparative cross-species, cross-cultural, and multicultural, as well as class and gender perspectives.
A B.A. in Human Development will help prepare students for professional, managerial, service, and educational careers in human development and human services serving infants, children, adolescents, families, and elders. The degree in Human Development will also complement students' preparation for graduate studies in traditional fields such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, or human development.
