Howard University Launches New Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development

The School of Education at historically Black Howard University has launched a new degree completion program for a bachelor of science in human development. The exclusively online program will be available to students who have completed between 60 and 72 credit hours, but have not earned a college or university credit for at least one year.

Students who are enrolled in the human development major will learn interdisciplinary approaches to studying and promoting human development from all stages of life. The degree program will commit to teaching students how to culturally respond to social justice issues and empower marginalized communities.

“We are deeply excited to offer a pathway for those who have dreamed of completing a college degree. HBCUs have a strong legacy as beacons of hope providing unparalleled access to higher education, regardless of background and hence empowering generations to reach their fullest potential,” said Dawn Williams, dean of the Howard University School of Education. “Degree completion programs not only open doors to new professional opportunities, but also serve as a testament to the resilience and determination of those who pursue them.”

Classes for the new major will begin in the fall 2024 semester. More information on Howard University’s human development degree completion program can be found here.
