B.S. in Child Development and Family Relations

The Child Development and Family Relations program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree. Primary objectives of the program are to prepare professionals to administer and/or work in programs that entail aspects of child development and family relations, to teach at the adult level, or to administer human service agencies at federal, state, or local levels. The program also provides preparation for students who want to pursue graduate study in child development or family studies.

Current IUP students who wish to major or minor in Child Development and Family Relations must have a cumulative GPA of 2.3, after 45 credits, to be accepted formally by the department. Students transferring into IUP with fewer than 45 credits must have a GPA of 2.3 upon completion of 45 credits total (transfer plus IUP credits). Students transferring into IUP with more than 45 credits must have a GPA of 2.3 upon completion of their first semester.
