We have a new name! We are now called the Child Studies Program! Our new name better represents our major, and will allow us to be much more visible to students who are interested in children. The Child Studies Program continues to be committed to the excellent preparation of undergraduate students considering careers in elementary school education as well as a variety of community-based fields such as social work, law, child advocacy and several allied health fields.
Child Studies students are “on fire for justice”! They are “compassion in action” for children and families.
Students in the Child Studies Program can work with faculty on research teams and experience first hand the excitement of community-engaged research with children and families.
Students engage in hands-on, experiential, collaborative, and purposeful projects in each of their Child Studies courses.
