Child Studies Program Evolves to Meet Changing Needs of Students

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.
