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 12 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.
