The Applied Human Development program offered by Boston University prepares students for careers in diverse settings by providing them with opportunities to develop key competencies and experiences in the field. Our model seeks to emphasize the foundations of learning and education across interrelated developmental domains (e.g., cognitive, affective, moral, physical, social, etc.), while considering issues of cultural and social diversity. Through their course of study, Applied Human Development students develop an understanding of the intersecting dimensions of human development, including:
- A lifespan perspective
- The convergent impact of constancy and change
- Traditional and changing life roles
- The influence of gender, culture, race, disability, and socioeconomic status
Positive Youth DevelopmentThe Positive Youth Development specialization prepares students to assume leadership roles and responsibilities in a variety of youth-serving organizations. Students are asked to investigate a range of principles related to youth development, including: cultural responsiveness, youth engagement and empowerment, and strengths-based developmental approaches.
