When you commit your education to the social science of understanding children, you commit to improving the future. As a student in our interdisciplinary Child and Adolescent Studies program, the only one of its kind in the University System of Maryland, you’ll plunge into a unique fusion of coursework in psychology, social work, education and sociology. Our curriculum will challenge you, engage you and prepare you to work specifically with children and teens, both in and outside of a classroom setting. When you graduate, your versatility will enable you to work in settings where your acuity will help the people who need it the most.
