Students and faculty in the Human Development and Family Studies Program explore the ways people grow and develop, form relationships and families, and cope with the common events of life.

Human Development and Family Studies Program

Human Development and Family Studies Program

In the Human Development and Family Studies Program we offer courses that focus attention on the study of individual development, in an attempt to discover how people develop throughout their lives from infancy through old age. In other courses, we examine the contexts in which individuals develop; here we are concerned with personal relationships, families and communities, gender and sexual identities, and societal institutions. In all our work we take an ecological perspective, which means we look at the complex interaction of individual psychology and biology, social relationships, families, communities, societies and cultures.
