This is a general track which offers a menu of courses relating to individual and community development. HSDS students are free to combine classes from the Individual (HSDI) and Community (HSDC) tracks. This track meets the needs of students who seek greater flexibility in course work and are less concerned with specializing in the individual or community tracks.

The major in Human and Social Development (HSD) is based on the premise that the well-being of individuals and families cannot be fostered in isolation from the communities in which they live and the institutions that affect their lives.

HSD courses cover the scholarly and applied knowledge bases regarding the interconnectedness of personal, interpersonal, institutional, and community change, the barriers to healthy development and well-being at these levels, and the strategies and policies that promote well-being in individuals, families, and communities. Emphasis is placed on research and theory regarding preventive and strengths-promoting strategies as applied to complex, multicultural systems.
