About the Program

Teaching: Child and Family (non-certification program)

Individuals interested in working with children, adolescents, and families in a variety of settings have many opportunities to engage in coursework and fieldwork in authentic environments to explore the complexity of human behavior in context. Providing students with a sound social sciences foundation, the theories and processes of lifespan development, and emphasizing the framework for the ways in which families and communities coalesce, this degree provides important links between human development and practice. A hallmark of the program is a semester-long agency-based field experience.
