Human Development

Students gain advanced knowledge in the theories, methods, and research that provide the basis for expanding knowledge and understanding of human development from an interdisciplinary perspective. The program 1) incorporates study of the biological, cognitive, and social-emotional developmental domains, 2) organizes the study of human development across the lifespan from conception to death, and 3) emphasizes the context within which human development takes place, including cultural institutions such as families, schools, and hospitals; the environmental conditions related to nutrition, health, and disease; and the social and legal policies that affect development. Students graduate with the quantitative and qualitative skills necessary for careers in university research and teaching, administration of programs, consultation, program development, etc., in a variety of settings including those in education, medicine, mental health, public health, social services, and government.
