Washington State University Vancouver
The Department of Human Development at Washington State University is a multidisciplinary department devoted to understanding the nature of human development across the lifespan. Through our teaching, research, and outreach programs, we promote the healthy development of children, adults, and their families in the state of Washington and throughout the nation. We offer B.A. degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Prevention Science at the Vancouver and the Pullman campuses, as well as a B.A. in Human Development via distance. Members of our faculty are involved in a range of research projects on children and their families and in outreach activities through our youth and family extension programs. We run preschool programs on both the Pullman and Vancouver campuses. All undergraduate human development majors complete an internship to help prepare them for a career in the field. Our graduates are employed in a variety of educational and social services settings throughout the U.S.
