The Child and Adolescent Development Program focuses on the cognitive, social, affective, emotional, and physical development of children from birth through adolescence. Students study children’s growth and development within familial, school, and societal contexts. The major provides students with a strong foundation and training in the field, building upon child development courses completed at the community college level. The major responds to recent government mandates; the “No Child Left Behind” initiative requires that all federally funded preschools/head start programs have teachers with a bachelor’s degree by 2013.
