Department of Human Development and Family Studies

Welcome to the Department of Human Development and Family Studies

Human development and family studies (HDFS) is the science of how individuals and families develop behaviorally, cognitively, economically, emotionally, physically, and socially throughout the lifespan. You’ll learn an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge development and application to promote positive development and expand human potential as well as the importance of diversity, inclusiveness, and social justice.

If you want to help children, youth, adults, families, or the aging lead a better, more fulfilling life, a degree within HDFS will be a rewarding adventure!
