The major in Community and Applied Psychological Studies integrates individual, interpersonal, social, and community approaches to the promotion of healthy development and well-being. Community and Applied Psychological Studies (CAPS) is the new name for the originally titled Human and Social Development (HSD) major.

By exploring the scholarly and applied interconnections among individual, interpersonal, social, and community approaches to change, students learn to identify barriers to well-being and to implement effective change-oriented strategies and policies. CAPS coursework emphasizes theory, research, and skills. It culminates in a practicum in a setting related to students’ area of interest and prepares them for both graduate studies and careers.
