The Human Development Undergraduate Minor provides a rigorous foundation in Human Development for students who wish to support their major field of study with knowledge of human growth and development across multiple domains and developmental stages, as well as knowledge related to principles of teaching and learning and/or who desire active participation in human development research under the supervision of Human Development faculty in laboratory settings.

Student Students with a 2.0 minimum grade point average may seek enrollment in the program, during which they must complete 15-24 credits of coursework. Only courses in which the student has earned a grade of "C-" or higher will count toward the minor.

Students interested in declaring the minor in Human Development should fill out the Application for the Human Development Minor. Eligible students are accepted to the minor on a rolling basis.
