The Human Development and Social Policy Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) Degree, offered by the Family and Consumer Studies Department, involves intensive research on important polices and issues in the family, community and social life. The program takes a broad perspective on human development as interdependent with social policies that address human well-being in family, economic, and community contexts. Only a few students are admitted each year, so that students can benefit from close association with faculty.
