Sharon Ballard, Chair

The Department of Human Development and Family Science offers two master of science programs, a doctor of philosophy degree, and a graduate certificate.

Also offered is a graduate concentration and a dual degree option. The graduate concentration is in birth through kindergarten education and is offered via the Curriculum and Instruction, MAEd . The dual degree offers students an option to obtain two masters degrees while simultaneously enrolled in both the Hispanic Studies, MA and the Marriage and Family Therapy, MS 

Course work and training prepares students for professional practice, research, and administrative roles in teaching, as well as in agencies and organizations that provide services and support to children and families. Applicants must meet the admissions requirements of the Graduate School. Completion of an undergraduate degree in child development, birth through kindergarten, family studies, family and consumer sciences, the behavioral or social sciences or closely related area from an accredited institution is required for admission. Applicants may be required to take additional courses as part of the degree requirements in order to make up deficiencies or meet certification requirements. Research and clinical experiences are available through the Nancy W. Darden Child Development Center and the Family Therapy Clinic.
