Child Development Minor

The child development minor offers students an opportunity to expand their understandings of the needs and challenges of working with children and families. Students enrolled in the minor can explore the unique needs of children, the diversity of family life and the best ways to work with children with special needs and in early intervention environments.


The child development minor consists of 16 credits including CHI 101 and any CHI course for which the student meets prerequisites. Course selections must include at least eight credits at the 300-level or higher.
