Human Development and Family Studies (B.S.)

Department of Human Development and Family Studies

Our undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies is an interdisciplinary degree with elements of a traditional course of study in psychology, sociology, social work, and biology. However, our program focuses more specifically on how families and individuals develop throughout their lifetimes. You will learn about the major life phases from infancy through later adulthood and the complexities of social, emotional, cognitive, and cultural development.

Graduates from our program find fulfilling careers in a number of professional settings:

  • Family counseling
  • Early childhood education
  • Health care providers
  • Business professionals
