Child and Adolescent Psychology
The Child and Adolescent Psychology emphasis provides a framework for working with children and adolescents, as opposed to emphasis areas that may focus on other populations. Learners have the opportunity to observe children and apply psychological theory, principles, and methodology within assignments geared toward this population. Graduates of the emphasis may choose to pursue a master’s degree and beyond, and potentially a marriage and family therapy license.
Career Opportunities: Serve children and adolescents in schools, social welfare agencies, ministry, etc. Professions may include work with foster care and adoption, youth camps, YMCA, group homes, and the like.
This 15-unit emphasis may be paired with the following programs: B.A. in Applied Psychology, B.A. in Applied Studies, B.A. in Leadership, B.A. in Management, B.S. in Criminal Justice, B.S. in Health Sciences, and B.S. in Information Systems.
