The Human Development major focuses on how people develop over the course of their lives and in particular areas and settings. Today's human services professionals work with many client populations to improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities. Graduates are prepared to work directly with children, adults, and families in health professions, agencies, and educational settings. Courses include human development across the lifespan, family relationships, helping skills, research, and human sexuality. Students also have the opportunity to gain experience by completing an on-site field study in a human services agency.
