Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Child Development - Child & Adolescent Studies

This concentration in Child and Adolescent Studies is designed for individuals interested in working with young people from ages 6 to 19. Walden's B.S. in Child Development is one of the only non-licensure degree programs to offer this concentration, which explores how to guide learning and enhance healthy cognitive, physical, and socio-emotional development in school-age children and adolescents.

The Making Connections courses help you gain an understanding of effective practices in the field of school-age and adolescent development, examine the most effective learning environments, and make connections between key topics and trends and your own professional aspirations.

The Bachelor of Science in Child Development courses take into consideration the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). These standards are critical indicators of program quality, and their inclusion reflects the integrity of the Walden learning experience.

Courses in the Child and Adolescent Studies concentration focus on:

  • Foundational knowledge, current research, and career perspectives in the areas of development, education, and human ecology
  • How school-age children and adolescents develop and learn
  • Typical and atypical cognitive, physical, and socio-emotional development as well as the relationship among these developmental domains
  • How culturally diverse values and social attitudes are transmitted to school-age children and adolescents
  • Effective strategies needed for working with this age group in classroom and group settings
  • Techniques needed to facilitate positive relationships between and among homes, schools, and communities
  • Issues and trends related to school-age and adolescent students

Walden University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.

In addition to regional accreditation at the university level, there are professional accreditation bodies that accredit certain degree programs. However, not all programs require or are even eligible for specialized accreditation.

Walden University is listed in the U.S. Department of Education's comprehensive database of accredited postsecondary educational institutions. The database is searchable by institution name, accrediting body, and geographic region.

The Higher Learning Commission, which accredits Walden University, and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, which accredits Walden's M.S. program in Nursing, are both recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

CHEA is an advocate for quality assurance and institutional accountability and transparency in higher education. To that end, it works actively to strengthen accreditation through recognition of 60 accrediting agencies. It is a membership organization of colleges and universities that share these goals.
