"My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
