Project: Professional Development Plan The BS in child development program has provided you with a solid foundational base of knowledge in the field as well as allowed you to explore principles, practices, and issues in a specialization of your choice. In completing the courses in your program, you have no doubt learned a great deal, not only about children, adolescents, and their families, but also about yourself. Throughout this Capstone, you have explored professional options and considered what profession(s) might be the best fit for you now and in the future.
