Program Description

Prepare for a career that involves work with the aging population. Course work in the online B.S. in Human Development and Family Science: Adult Development & Aging degree program focuses on typical developmental trajectories of adults in later life with a particular emphasis on contextual influences.

 

The adult development and aging undergraduate option also includes a field experience component. All students are given the opportunity to work in a professional placement during their undergraduate program. This requirement enables students to apply their course work to a professional position as they prepare to move into important careers with adults and aging individuals

Other careers require preparations beyond the bachelor's level. An HDFS degree is excellent preparation for students considering graduate work. If you are interested in a complementary graduate program, consider our online M.S. in Human Development and Family Science degree with options in Gerontology and Family Financial Planning.  Both of these programs also have online graduate certificate programs available.
