Program Information

Degrees Offered:

M.A.- Human Development

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The program is designed for students who want to work in early intervention, parenting, child care, and other programs serving infants, children, adolescents, adults and families. Graduates are employed in a variety of positions, including positions as directors of intervention programs at universities and in human service agencies, as service providers in community agencies, in county extension agency programs, and as instructors in community colleges. As early intervention services continue to serve the needs of young children and society recognizes the significance of supports for human development across the lifespan we have seen continuing opportunities for graduates. Our graduates do not have a license or certificate, however, and must seek out opportunities that match their skills and interests and at the same time do not require licensure or certification.
