The Human Development and Family Studies concentrations are part of the Department of Educational Psychology in the College of Education. These program areas prepare professionals through study, research, and practical experiences to enhance the quality of life and education for children, youth, adults, and families. Graduates are prepared to assume diverse roles in parent/family life education, child life, early childhood intervention, teaching, research, administration, and other professions requiring knowledge of human development and family life.
