Our students seek to improve the lives of children and families—and society, in general—by becoming successful practitioners, leaders, and advocates in fields such as Child Life, Family Studies, Human Development, Social Work, Education, and Organizational Leadership.
Excellent Programs and Flexible Schedules
At the graduate level, we offer degree programs, post-baccalaureate certificates, course cluster programs, and professional development courses, as well as various continuing education institutes throughout the year. This variety of offerings enables us to support the broad array of academic goals and professional development needs of our students.
Evening and weekend courses enable students to schedule courses as their personal and professional schedules allow. Students engage in the classroom and in field experiences with experts and advocates from multiple fields of study. This close collaboration in combining theory and scholarship with real-world research and practice enable our students to expand their horizons, embrace best practices, and tailor their learning experience to their professional goals.
