Human Development and Family Sciences (BS or Minor)

hdfs

The Department of Human Development and Family Sciences examines human development within the context of families, schools, work, communities, and other social-cultural environments. Recognizing the diversity and challenges of contemporary life, our faculty and students study how environments can enhance - or limit - individual and family development from early childhood through the end of life.

All HDFS programs recognize the critical importance of culture and gender; diversity; and contemporary, global perspectives in the discovery of knowledge and preparation of professionals. Thus, department activities are guided by social responsibility, compassion, and high ethical standards. The HDFS program is laid out to meet student's varied paths, depending on which program is chosen the emphasis can be a minor, option or certificate.

The HDFS Department Mission Statement
