The Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) at University of Wisconsin Stout is dedicated to the study of human development and family life in which the individual, family, and community are viewed as interrelated.


Key facts

It is an interdisciplinary field that draws from other social sciences but has established distinct assumptions, approaches to studying families, and worldview. A multidisciplinary approach provides students with both a broad perspective and specialized knowledge.

Our goal is to foster positive sensitivity to the needs of families and their members through the lenses of relationships, culture, gender, age, and life stage, among others.
