Majoring in Human Development
Member since 2/11/2013
I majored in Human Development and Family Science. I am very satisfied with my program. I like that my program had a lab school associated with the program where those who chose the Early Childhood Development Track can gain hands on experience. I got a chance to work directly with young children at this lab school from the very first class I took for this major. The work load is fair and mostly all assignments for my classes helped me gain practical knowledge related to my field.
The Human Development and Family Science major requires you to complete a non-paid practicum your final semester. I interned for Easter Seals, Early Childhood Development Center. I got to work with specialist to provide interventions services to children with disabilities and developmental delays. The practicum director gives you a list of places that you can intern at, and you have to contact them and set up an interview. Getting an internship is not difficult. If you can't find one the program director will help you.
I majored in human development and family science. This program is in the College of Natural Science. The process was very easy. I just had to take 2 classes before declaring my major. You can meet with an adviser for the program and they will provide a list of courses that are required to complete this major.
