TheBestSchools.org has identified Hope International University’s College of Psychology & Counseling as one of the nation’s Best Online Bachelor’s in Human & Family Development. HIU’s achievement is based on several factors, including quality of program and range of courses provided, as well as school awards, rankings, and reputation.

HIU’s online Human Development program features two concentrations: the Community Mental Health and Counseling Concentration or the Family Studies Concentration. The mental health track emphasizes training in therapeutic interventions and case management. Example courses include abnormal psychology, counseling skills, and counseling theories. The family studies track familiarizes students with theories of child and adolescent development, and students complete coursework in areas like the sociology of families, parent-child relations, and toddler mental health. Students of both concentrations complete a capstone course in which they develop a case project that includes thoughtfully selected components of theories, techniques, and biblical values to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

 “The school’s [HIU] online bachelor’s in human development provides students with the training necessary to nurture their faith and community simultaneously.”- TheBestSchools.org.
