School of Educational Leadership, Higher Education and Human Development
Students who major or minor in Child Development and Family Relations at University of Maine learn the fundamentals of how human beings develop physically, emotionally and intellectually throughout their lives. We train our graduates to examine how relationships form in society and how they can help families in need.
We focus on lifespan, from cradle to grave. From conception to adolescence to adult development and aging—we cover broad issues of family relationships, public policy, diversity and cross-cultural perspectives.
We have a broad degree program to appeal to a variety of interests. Students who are interested in helping others, advocating for social change, and contributing to stronger and healthier communities will find the program to be an excellent path to a fulfilling career, whatever direction they choose.
