Undergraduate major programs
The Institute of Child Development is a premiere center of scholarship, teaching and outreach. We offer programs in child psychology and early childhood education. Both of our programs are focused on learning about the developing child from slightly different perspectives, with slightly different goals.
B.A./B.S. in Child Psychology
Child psychology spans the biological and social sciences. Tune your skills in problem solving, critical thinking, statistics, and writing. Get involved in directed research or gain practical experience through field study. Prepare for a career or graduate study in psychology, counseling, human services, education, medicine, law, sociology, or another behavioral science.
B.S. in Early Childhood
Prepare to work with young children and their families. Establish a strong foundation in child development and early childhood educational pedagogy. The program is flexible based on your career interests. Pursue one of two tracks: foundations of education or individualized studies.
