Human Development


Human Development courses provide theoretical and practical foundations in developing skills for college success as well as for decision-making in your career and personal life.

The Student Success course includes study skills; strategies for career success; interpersonal communications; personal and social growth; and organizational strategies. Educational Alternatives focuses on the learning environment, while Assessment of Prior Learning helps document prior learning as college credit. Human development courses are listed under the four-letter rubric (course prefix) HDEV.


Taking human development classes at North Lake College is an affordable way to get started on a path to a brighter future. Whether you’re taking classes to transfer to a four-year college or university, or for personal enrichment, our curriculum will give you the foundational skills you need.
