Introduction

The Bachelor of Science in Child and Adolescent Development (CHAD) is designed to provide students with empirically derived knowledge about bio-physical, socio-emotional and cognitive developmental milestones from conception through adolescence; individual and cultural differences; and common variations in development. Students develop critical thinking, writing and oral presentation skills in preparation to be professionals working with children and families. Our curriculum provides broad undergraduate preparation for students interested in early care and education, elementary education, special education and a variety of youth-related social service careers, as well as graduate study in disciplines such as child development, counseling, developmental psychology and social work.
