Top Ranking for Department of Human Development

The Cal State East Bay program is No. 5 in the state

Cal State East Bay's Human Development program has been ranked No. 5 in California by Zippia, a career services website.

According to a new ranking by Zippia, a career services website for recent college graduates, Cal State East Bay's Human Development program is No. 5 in California, following CSU Long Beach and CSU San Marcos.

"The Department of Human Development is pleased to receive recognition as a top-five Human Development program in California," said Cal State East Bay Professor and Department Chair Keri O'Neal. "Our multidisciplinary program prepares students for a wide array of employment opportunities and graduate school possibilities, and our commitment to meeting the needs of students has been paramount to the success of the department. We look forward to continued achievements and growth, as we seek to evolve with the ever-changing student population." 

Per Zippia's website, the rankings were compiled using data from the National Center for Education Statistics and "College Scorecard" information from Ed.gov. The focus of the analysis was to identify which Human Development programs offer the best career opportunities, taking into account the career results of graduates after six and 10 years; the percentage of a graduating class with declared human development majors; and several factors indicating overall school performance.
