Human Development Minor

The Department of Health and Human Development offers a non-teaching minor in Human Development.  Students in the minor examine current research, theory, and practice across the lifespan and select 9 credits of supporting courses based upon their interests.  The minor is designed to enhance the student's major area of study and is a strong complement to all majors.  The minor cannot be completed by students completing a major in Human Development and Family Science.
