This major prepares students to work with children, adolescents, teens, and families in a variety of professions. The study of theory and research findings is coordinated with a variety of supervised field experiences. You investigate the ways individuals interact within the family system and with the larger socioeconomic environment. You may select an area of concentration in either child and adolescent development or family studies. See the four-year plan for the Human Development and Family Studies major. See the University Catalog College of Education section.
