The following info comes from Pamela W. Gardner, undergraduate advisor at SDSU in the department of Child and Family Development:
"I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the San Diego State University Child and Family Development Department/Major.
Child and Family Development students take an array of classes that provide excellent preparation for a variety of professions. Certainly, our graduates find positions in preschools and child care centers. But, our students also secure positions in social service agencies, working with homeless youth, pregnant and parenting teens, victims of domestic violence, children with special needs, etc. Our major also provides outstanding preparation for future elementary school teachers, school counselors, and school psychologists. Moreover, CFD graduates go on to become Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, professors, attorneys, pediatricians, occupational therapists, and child life specialists. As you can see, our major is broad and our alumni are accepted into, and are successful in, many graduate and professional programs.
Please let your students know about our exciting major, and have them visit our website at http://coe.sdsu.edu/cfd/. The homepage offers several videos of careers our students pursue. Your students might also want to read more about our major in the SDSU catalog. That can be accessed through our website, www.sdsu.edu, click on Academics and General Catalog. I also invite your students to email me directly with any questions. We welcome them on campus, as well. I also have a team that is happy to come to your campus. Just let me know.
Thank you very much for your consideration. I wish you a very successful 2015 fall semester!"
