The study of child development encompasses all the aspects of human growth from birth to adolescence. These include the progressive elaboration of the child's intellectual skills; personality development, involving the complex interaction between psychosocial factors and the stage-by-stage development of the body; and socialization, the process by which children adjust to society and its demands. Citrus College offers an extensive, highly regarded program in this area of study.
