Human Development & Family Science (B.S.)

Department of Human Development & Family Science

The courses in our HDFS undergraduate programs help students develop critical thinking skills about evidence in the science of relationships and development. Our students build in-demand, practical skills for working with people in many stages of life, in many types of relationships, and across many social and cultural contexts.

Our graduates are equipped for diverse careers working with children, adults, and families. HDFS graduates can also translate these skills to other professional spheres like business settings or prepare for advanced graduate study.
