The human development and family science (HDFS) major offers a broad range of coursework and experiences that prepare students for a wide variety of career options.
Our students are successful in securing meaningful employment in a range of careers after graduation as well as admission to competitive graduate and professional programs. Here are some examples of recent job and graduate/professional school placements.
More information on job placements for HDFS (and other majors) can be found on the K-State Career Services website.
As a HDFS student, you are not alone as you explore the many opportunities available to you. Opportunities to purposefully explore career and graduate/professional opportunities are built into our curriculum, and HDFS faculty and advisors are available to answer any questions you might have.
The "Career Exploration" section of the K-State Career Services website is also useful to many of our students as they explore the different opportunities available to HDFS students.
HDFSCareers.com is a website hosted by Dr. Erica Jordan, a faculty member in HDFS at the University of Houston. The website includes podcasts, interviews, and a blog covering issues related to HDFS careers.
If you have questions about HDFS Careers or Graduate/Professional School, please reach out to Dr. Michelle Toews. For internship information, please contact Dr. Kari Morgan. Both will be happy to talk to you about your career goals."
