Pacific Oaks' online bachelor's-completion program in human development equips graduates with a comprehensive interdisciplinary understanding of human development across the lifespan, from birth through the end of life. Human Development students become familiar with the biological, psychological, emotional, and sociological factors that contribute to an individual's development. Through the program, students will learn the implications those factors have on such wide-ranging skills and milestones as problem solving, language acquisition, personality and identity formation, and social and emotional maturation. Integrated into the content is Pacific Oaks' hallmark commitment to social justice, advocacy, and its respect for diversity and individual potential. Depending upon transfer credits received, the online program may be completed in as little as 20 months part time, or one year full time. Online students may select from four concentrations: Active Learning Across the Lifespan, Early Childhood Education and Development, Social Change, and Working With Adults. Pacific Oaks' Credit for Learning from Experience option allows students in this online program to accelerate their progress toward a bachelor's degree and entry into a master's program by waiving undergraduate credit for experience they have gained in the workplace.
