The Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum with a Child Development concentration offers a broad range of courses designed to provide foundational knowledge in areas such as English, mathematics, science, and history while also providing key courses that are designed for students who are interested in professions

involving children. The major provides the scientific base for understanding development from birth through adolescence.

The Child Development concentration is an excellent foundation toward pursuing a baccalaureate degree within education and human services.

The general education core for this degree complies with guidelines of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI).
