This program provides the foundational knowledge and skills needed to work with a diverse group of people in entry level professions such as mental health, community development, respite and health organizations, and education. The study of human growth and development sets the framework for discoveries, discussions, and presentations of various topics (such as human behavior, brain development, and developmental psychology). Students sharpen their interpersonal communication skills, reflect on and assess human behavior in a variety of
settings, and have opportunities to develop projects that make a difference in their communities. Students participate in work-based learning by partnering with industry professionals and through working in community agencies and organizations. Students have the opportunity to work with preschool children in our on-site preschool classroom.
