Human Development and Family Studies Major
Bachelor of Science

The human development and family studies major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences provides students with an interdisciplinary program of study that fosters critical, independent thinking and an empirical framework for understanding the development of individuals and families across the lifespan. It identifies factors that influence cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development through infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and later adulthood in the contexts of family, culture, and society. The major provides a foundation for students interested in working with individuals in varied settings, ranging from public and nonprofit agencies, to business and governmental agencies and for students preparing for graduate education in the social, behavioral, and health sciences or for advanced professional training in mental health counseling, marriage and family therapy, social work, law, business, public administration, or the health professions.
