Human Development Undergraduate Majors

Human Development majors earn a Bachelor of Science degree through exploration of the psychological, social, cultural, and biological development of humans from conception to old age, focusing on the processes and mechanisms of growth and change over the life course. A wide range of issues are included in the study of human development, including biological, cognitive, and emotional development; the role of the family, neighborhood, workplace, and culture on development; and the influence that developing humans have on their environment. The Human Development major provides an excellent basis for careers in medicine, law, business, child and family advocacy, social work and education and an excellent preparation for becoming a professor of Human Development, Sociology, Psychology or Neuroscience.

Our majors must complete a
concentration in one of five areas.

Opportunities for research augment the classroom learning environment.
