The mission of the College of HHD is to provide exemplary education, research, and community outreach related to human health, development, and lifelong well-being. Emphasis is placed on both theory and evidence-based practice, with special attention to the development of critical thinking, leadership, and professional skills needed in a global society.

The Department of Child and Adolescent Studies is dedicated to promoting the well-being of children, adolescents, and families through teaching, research, and reflective practice. The Mission of the department is to:

The Bachelor of Science in Child and Adolescent Development (CAS) is designed to provide students with empirically-derived knowledge about bio-physical, socio-emotional, and cognitive developmental milestones from conception through adolescence; individual and cultural differences; and common variations in development.

Our curriculum provides broad undergraduate preparation for students interested in early care and education, elementary education, special education, and a variety of youth-related social service careers, as well as graduate study in disciplines such as child development, counseling, developmental psychology, and social work.
