Prospective Students

Students with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development are qualified to work in a variety of settings related to providing services for others. These might include health care, child and adult care centers, community projects providing outreach to youth and adults, sales, service related government agencies such as housing, law enforcement, and criminal justice, and assisting with community development, both in the United States and around the world. A Bachelor’s degree in Human Development may also prepare students for graduate studies in marriage, family, and child counseling, social work, teaching, public administration, psychology, business, or law. Students interested in these career opportunities should consult with advisors in appropriate areas before planning their programs. Finally, the Human Development major will prepare students for master’s and doctoral level training in fields such as Sociology, Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, Anthropology, Ethnic Studies, Women’s Studies, Psychology, and Human Development, among others.
