Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and Family Studies
In the Human Development and Family Studies major, you'll explore both theoretical
and practical issues of learning. You'll learn the importance of particular classroom
models for teaching and learning, as well as examine the historical, cultural,
and social contexts that cause particular behavior patterns. When you complete
the 180-quarter-hour program, you'll be well-equipped to advance within your local
school system, Georgia Head Start, or other early childhood programs. If you graduate
with a 2.5 GPA and are hired by a school district, you'll be eligible for alternate
teacher certification through Georgia TAPP (Teacher Alternate Preparation Program).
