Human Development and Community Engagement Major
The Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Community Engagement prepares students to make a difference in children’s lives by influencing the programs, policies, and practices of organizations with child-focused initiatives. Students build the skills required to facilitate the cognitive, physical and social development of children, particularly in urban communities. A yearlong practicum and internship provides the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience while serving young students in the local community.
This flexible, interdisciplinary degree covers organizational communication and applied communication research methods, as well as
- child development,
- program evaluation,
- research methods and
- understanding urban communities.
