Psychology - BS in Child Development

Return to: BS in Child Development  

This program is no longer accepting new students. Current students must complete their programs of study in accordance with Walden’s Time-to-Degree Completion policies.


From infancy to adolescence, children are shaped by emotional, physical, social, and environmental factors. The Psychology concentration will expand students’ understanding of the development, behavior, and motivations of children of all ages. Students build the knowledge base needed to work with children and their families in a variety of public, private, and nonprofit organizations. The BS in Child Development program is one of the only non-licensure degree programs in the nation to offer this concentration, which is designed for individuals who want to increase their knowledge of human psychology and behavior as they relate to development from infancy through adolescence.
