Human Development and Family Studies (B.A.)

Department of Human Services

Every person has a unique story. Every family has a unique dynamic. Our lived experiences shape how we grow, think, feel, and form relationships throughout our lives. So when it comes to helping people navigate life’s intricacies and challenges, your approach should be as distinctive as the individuals you serve.

That’s why Maryville University designed a program that takes a comprehensive and realistic view of human nature. Our online Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and Family Studies degree explores the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of people and families across the lifespan — and in the context of the greater world.
