Human Development and Family Sciences majors prepare for many types of careers working with children and families. Using an interdisciplinary approach, students focus on human development and family relationships across the lifespan.

Students have the opportunity to participate at the Child Development Center, which is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. This facility serves as a research and teaching practicum site for students interested in working in programs for young children and their families.

Career opportunities for graduates include positions as teachers, administrators, or specialists in private or government funded child development programs, community agencies, extension service, youth organizations, after-school care, or programs that serve the elderly.
