The Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development (HD) is designed to support student learning about the mechanisms of growth and change across the lifespan. With areas of focus in developmental science, educational psychology and statistical methodology, HD majors will explore the biological, social, emotional, and cognitive processes of learning and development from conception to old age in diverse social and cultural contexts.

The College of Education will be hosting Major Exploration Workshops (MEW) for the Human Development Major that students must attend prior to meeting with an Academic Advisor. We have one MEW scheduled for this Fall (Tuesday, December 7th @ 10am) and more will be scheduled in the new year.
