Child Development Major

Child Development is an interdisciplinary field of study that examines the growth and development of children in their social contexts. The Child Development major is a flexible plan of study designed to prepare students for a wide variety of careers in human service settings working with children and families. Some examples may include: early intervention, child protective services worker, after school activities director, and youth development specialist. It may also be used as preparatory training for graduate studies in child development and professional programs in health- and counseling-related fields. Students who take this major cannot minor in Child Development or double major in Family Studies. Students may only double count 9 credits when combining the Child Development Major with the Family Studies Minor.
