You will enjoy advanced opportunities at Texas Tech that few bachelor's degree programs
offer. Our human development and family studies program enables you to:
Work directly with children and families from your freshman year onward. Texas Tech's on-site Child Development Research Center (CDRC) hosts 80 families with children aged 5 and younger. You can observe professional
case workers and work with real clients in this state-of-the-art learning laboratory.
Get hands-on guidance and mentoring from faculty. The Human Development and Family Studies department keeps class sizes small, ensuring
that every student receives individualized attention from faculty. Few bachelor's
degree programs offer you the same level of mentoring and personalized instruction.
Gain internship experience and perform community service. Texas Tech has connections with all types of child and family service agencies, including
Head Start centers, after-school programs, group homes, child-care centers and religious
organizations. We will help you find an internship that is specifically tailored to
your career goals, and provides you with meaningful experience.
