Developmental and Family Science (B.S.)

Department of Human Development and Family Science

The Developmental and Family Science curriculum allows students to take an interdisciplinary approach to studying families and human development across the lifespan. Students receive a broad education in human development and family studies, with many opportunities for specialization, including optional concentrations in child development or family and community health.

The major culminates in a capstone experience, designed by the student from among three choices: an internship, a research thesis, or a study abroad experience. This degree will prepare you to work with families in the contexts of schools and communities or for you to pursue an advanced academic degree.
