The Graduate Program in Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) is housed in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences. The Graduate Program enrolls 30 to 35 graduate students annually, about two-thirds of whom are doctoral students. The Program offers graduate study in several disciplinary areas of specialization: early childhood, family studies, and life span human development. A minor in gerontology is also administered through HDFS.
