Overview

By choosing the concentration in Psychology - Child and Adolescent Development at Southern New Hampshire University , psychology majors gain an in-depth understanding on the unique physical, social, psychological and cognitive needs of young people. 

The program stresses experiential learning, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to gain real-world experience by doing internships, a practicum or research and volunteer projects. In fact, in many courses you can even choose to work in the field over writing a research paper. Your professors will work with you to find opportunities that best match your interests.

Internships & Outcomes

Before you graduate you'll create an e-portfolio that highlights your experiences in the program, from what you learned in the classroom to how you applied it in the real world. You'll be able to use this to help get into a graduate program, show your value to an employer, or just show your parents all that you learned.

Courses for the program, which are offered on campus, on location and online, are relatively small. Expect about 15-20 students in the child and adolescent concentration classes and the upper level psychology courses — more for the introductory psychology courses.

Most professors keep classes highly interactive by encouraging participation in class discussions and assigning group-based projects. And many professors invite students to participate in special research projects to gain even more professional experience.
