The study of child development encompasses the human life span from conception through adolescence.

An academic background in child development (birth through adolescence) provides a foundation for your professional role in human service and education careers, which demands insightful communication, knowledgeable supervision, and realistic problem solving.

Working with children, families, and allied professionals in instructional, supervisory, and support capacities merits life-long learning. Completing this degree is an important step in your career achievements.

Child development students will…
  • Interact one-on-one with highly qualified faculty in face-toface and online classes.
  • Acquire first-hand knowledge of child development in action through experiential learning with children and families in a variety of University and community settings.
  • Apply child development knowledge to create healthy, supportive learning and care environments.
  • Be prepared to collaborate with allied professionals in government, corporate, education, and social service settings.
