理解 yourself and your role in the world.

Branson’s Human Development program teaches students the interpersonal and self-man年龄ment skills needed to navigate a diverse and changing world, and to make informed decisions that benefit themselves and others, so they can evolve into kind, 好奇的, and self-aware young adults. By providing accurate and relevant information in a nonjudgmental, socially sensitive way, we create safe spaces to have uncomfortable conversations about real-life situations where students cultivate their personal 年龄ncy, gain a deeper awareness of their role in the community, and learn to foster healthy relationships of all kinds.

Throughout your four years of Human Development courses, you will explore many areas, such as psychology 101, healthy peer relationships, organization and study habits, mental health awareness, 性ual health and identity, civic leadership, systematic racism, 和更多的. Your experience will culminate with a course taught by the College Counseling office, which provides a space of deep reflection and empowerment during a time that can often feel stressful to teen年龄rs.
