Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) offers a Bachelor of Science degree online in collaboration with CSU Online. The HDFS online courses are designed to be comparable to their parallel resident instruction courses in HDFS, providing a high quality university education. The online Bachelor of Science degree in HDFS carries the full accreditation of Colorado State University, and is indistinguishable on student transcripts from the on-campus version of the degree. To view the curriculum requirements, visit our degree page on the CSU Online site or the Curriculum Checksheet further down on this page. The course options available online beginning Fall 2016 for each concentration include:
Students can also pursue the Gerontology Interdisciplinary Minor and Early Childhood Director Qualifications online. Please contact the HDFS Online Advisor, Jr McGrath, with questions or the CSU Online Student Support Team to get started.
All HDFS degree seeking students must complete the field placement requirement in their senior year. Students must actively participate in arranging their field placement with the assistance of the HDFS Distance Coordinator in the semesters leading up to their placement.
