The Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development offers a Master of Arts in Child Study and Human Development with the option to follow one of two tracks:
- M.A. in Child Study and Human Development – Applied Track
- M.A. in Child Study and Human Development – Thesis Track
Our master's program is committed to training our students to be scholars and practitioners who want to make a difference in the lives of children and adolescents and impact the contexts in which they live: families and communities. Although we are concerned about the many challenges faced by children and families today, we identify strengths and promote positive attributes of children and adolescents so that they can thrive in the 21st century.
Graduate Student Advising
Upon matriculation, graduate students are assigned a faculty advisor who provides advice about registration for courses and program requirements. The interaction between the graduate student and a faculty member is one of the most significant aspects of a graduate student's time at Tufts.
