The Human Development Program is concerned with growth and continuity over the human life span with particular focus on the early years. Students are educated in observation, theory and intervention strategies with application in the fields of medicine, nursing, teaching, research and mental health as well as parenting.

In addition to satisfying the general requirements for graduation from New College, a student must design, with the adviser for this focus, a program of 40 s.h. of studies. At least 20 s.h. of these credits must be in advanced courses or projects. In addition, the program must include a 4 s.h. Special Seminar in Human Development (taken during the junior year, in partial satisfaction of College graduation requirements) and a 4 s.h. Senior Project. This program design must be submitted for approval to the Area Coordinator by the end  of the sophomore year.
