Overview

Key facts:

  • The program in Child Development offered by the University of Maryland Eastern Shore prepares students to work with and/or teach others to work with children and their families. Emphases are given to development within various family structures and to strategies for facilitating normal development. Students learn basic and applied concepts of human development and acquire skills in working with young children of varying abilities and backgrounds and with their families in a variety of settings. In addition to classroom instruction, the Child Development students spend part of several semesters working in the campus Child and Family Development Center and in off-campus social and human service agencies.
  • Potential employment opportunities include private child care facilities, hospital and clinic settings, recreation programs, health and social service agencies, and businesses. Students choosing this option can broaden their career possibilities by completing courses in cognate areas such as business, recreation, or nutrition that complement the training in Child Development. In addition, successful completion of the Child Development program provides excellent preparation for graduate studies.
