University Majors

California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Child Development B.S.

The undergraduate program in Child Development is designed for students who wish to gain a solid understanding of development from conception through emerging adulthood. Particular emphasis is given to helping students appreciate the broad ecological contexts in which development occurs, including family, school, technology, community and culture. A strong focus on hands-on experiences throughout the program provides students with a rich set of opportunities to enhance their understandings of child development. The curriculum of the Child Development major is both rigorous and flexible. Child Development majors at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo receive a broad education in child and adolescent development through a sequence of required courses, and obtain a minor in psychology as part of the program of study. Majors can also focus on areas of particular interest by choosing specific advisor-approved electives and through their choice of internships, senior projects, and other elective courses. Students are welcomed from all cultural backgrounds and with all levels of experience with children and youth.
