A minor in family and human development, from the School of Social and Family Dynamics, exposes students to the basic course work and issues within the discipline. This program provides an exceptional balance to studies in psychology, communication, education, business or nursing. Students will develop excellent preparation for future work in counseling, family and developmental sciences, law, medicine and social work. The minor in family and human development consists of 18 credit hours in which students specialize in family studies or child development. Please note, students may only apply to a minor in combination with an existing degree program. Please speak with your academic advisor to ensure this minor is applicable with your major.
A student wishing to pursue a specific minor should consult an academic advisor in the unit offering that minor to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. The student should also consult an academic advisor in the college or department of the major to make sure the college or department of the major allows the recognition of the minor.
Note: Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate either by the college or department of the major or minor. Courses taken as part of a minor may not count toward both the major degree and the minor. Please contact the department for more information.
