Students who are fascinated with human development and family relationships might find a home in the Child and Family Studies major. The program offers students opportunities to gain insight into healthy development and what factors can impede healthy development. What happens to us in childhood can have lasting effects on how we handle relationships and life situations as adults. By learning about these processes, Child and Family Studies majors can learn about ways to have a positive impact on others.
