The mission of the Counseling and Human Development department is to provide high quality educational programs to learners who will work in human science fields, and to generate knowledge of human behavior, cognition, and interaction.
Students will participate in practical experiences designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary for careers in individual and family service settings; child/adult focused human services, and/or continued coursework in graduate school.
The Department of Counseling and Human Development is one of the few public university departments in South Dakota that delivers programs at the main campus in Brookings, at the University Centers in Rapid City and Sioux Falls, and on-line.
