The Diploma in Human Development extends understanding of theoretical and applied study and research in the area of human development. This multidisciplinary programme examines the development of individuals across the lifespan.
Courses emphasise physical, cognitive and psychosocial domains of development. Through coursework and undergraduate research activities, you will develop skills relevant to career objectives such as counselling, human assessment, programme planning and evaluation, and research.
Graduates will use a broad range of theory and research to understand and explain the development of people from early childhood through to old age, examine the influence of contexts, and apply this knowledge to specific life situations.
