There are many career paths and job possibilities for students with a Child Development specialization, depending on whether they choose to move directly into a work setting or attend graduate school. Required courses provide the foundation for understanding how children develop, learn, and behave and develop the competence needed to effectively guide children and work with their families. Field experiences permit students to apply this knowledge base and develop their professional skills.
