Human Development Graduate Group

M.S. in Child Development

The graduate program in Child Development is a multi-disciplinary, two-year program leading to a Master of Science degree. This program offers students an in-depth examination of cognitive and socio-emotional development from infancy through adolescence and provides a foundation for careers in program-delivery (e.g., Early Childhood; 4-H; Youth Development), teaching at the community-college level, or further graduate study. The curriculum emphasizes a balance of practical, supervised experience, theory, and methodology in the belief that, in order to be effective, educators and practitioners alike must have solid disciplinary foundations.
