    What will I study?

    Using the processes and principles of human development as a foundation, students learn to think critically and work skillfully in settings such as mental health agencies, day care centers, special education classrooms, support agencies for persons with developmental delays, convalescent hospitals and many other social service settings. They will be able to use psychological and developmental principles to understand conflict, to generate alternate responses, to act on educated judgment, to modify contexts to bring about desired changes while recognizing the dignity of persons, to promote human welfare and to maintain scholarly integrity. The department integrates a solid theoretical base with applied experiences in all programs.
