Division of Human Development

In the Division of Human Development, students focus their inquiry on human beings, who are the principle agents in daily life, from both physical and mental perspectives. In particular, they aim to identify the influence of such factors as education, culture and environment on the process of mental development in the various stages of growth, and to investigate the basic biological theory, nutrition, and eating habits that affect the formation and growth of the human body. Finally, they study ways of maintaining and improving human health.
