Why study Child Development at HSU

Our goal is to help men and women interpret and integrate the ever-growing body of knowledge about children and their environments and determine implications and applications of that information. We take a holistic approach to the study of life from birth to eighteen.

Students will be oriented to basic principles, theories, and practices of child development.

After completing core classes, students select courses in an emphasis and specialization that provide greater depth and/or breadth in related topics. The emphasis and specialization areas can be designed to provide opportunities for career preparation.
