Human Development & Family Studies (BSAHS)

Department of Applied Health Science

As a human development and family studies major, you'll investigate the ways we develop over the life span—from conception through aging—as well as how we function within our family and broader social environments. Challenging courses and a required internship will prepare you for a career in the growing field of human and social services.

The program in human development and family studies involves the study of human behavior from two perspectives: how we develop over the life span from conception through aging, and how we function within the context of the family and other environmental influences. This multidisciplinary major prepares students for careers in the growing field of human and social services.
