The Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Community Engagement prepares students to make a difference in people’s lives by influencing the programs, policies, and practices of organizations. Students build the skills required to facilitate the cognitive, physical and social development of individuals, particularly in urban communities.

This flexible, interdisciplinary degree enables students to use a variety of interventions to effect community and individual change by covering topics such as
- curriculum and training design,
- human development,
- program evaluation and
- understanding urban communities.
