The College of Health and Human Development (HHD) at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is committed to student success.  We are proud of our diverse faculty and staff.  We have 50 staff members and a faculty of over 350 full- and part-time academic professionals who provide and support education, advising and mentorship opportunities to over 6,500 students enrolled in courses on campus and online. This number includes nearly a hundred doctoral students as of the fall 2018 semester.

Through nine academic departments, we offer 11 undergraduate and 12 graduate degree programs, as well as self-supporting programs through the Tseng College of Graduate, International and Midcareer Education and two credentials in partnership with the Michael D. Eisner College of Education.

Our academic disciplines share the common objective of improving the quality of human life throughout the lifespan. Our graduates manage services and also work directly with the community. Study programs are enriched through internships, service-learning experiences, multiple touchpoints for advising, and a campus environment that is inclusive and active. CSUN HHD attracts and engages students from around the corner and around the world.
