Program description

American Bachelor in Child Development

The Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development program at the University of New York in Prague is designed for students who wish to study children (infancy through adolescence) and their development in relation to the familial, cultural, peer, school, and neighbourhood contexts in which they live.

The program is designed to provide a strong background in the social and behavioural sciences related to child development, enabling students to apply theory and prior research to current research design in child development.

Reasons to study Child Development at UNYP

The Child Development program offers a solid foundation in the field and allows students to continue their studies or enter the working world as culturally-competent graduates with a wide range of applicable skills.

The program is excellent preparation for graduate study in selected social science and professional fields (e.g., education, psychology, social services, child care) and can serve as a complementary (or second) program for undergraduate students simultaneously pursuing a program of study in education (early childhood, elementary) or special education. The curriculum is designed to ensure that students develop a background in the liberal arts and sciences, as well as a clear understanding of the theories, major research findings and research methods central to the field.
