Program Overview

The Human Development major is specifically designed to address the changing social structures of contemporary society. As traditional roles, lifestyles, and conceptions of identity have evolved, so too has public policy regarding the social concerns and issues experienced by infants, children, adolescents, adults, and elders. Consequently, gaining an ample understanding of the processes that underlie human development is a pivotal factor in the way these issues are addressed and how their attendant problems can be effectively remediated. With growing numbers of older adults, single or working parents, and children of all ages in need of services, the HD curriculum is for those whose professional concerns will contribute to the development of life skills in the individual.
