Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs (alphabetic)

The Minor in Child and Family Development provides opportunities for students to develop an overview of early learning and development, an understanding of early childhood issues, and insights into the role of families, as well as the role of child care in out-of-home experiences.

In order to declare the minor, students must have an overall GPA of at least 2.5. Students who declare the Minor in Child and Family Development are required to complete six courses with a GPA of at least 2.5 (and a grade of C or above in all courses) for a total of 18 credit hours.


*CHFD 2111  and/or CHFD 2113  must be the first courses completed.
**CHFD 2111  is a pre-/corequisite for CHFD 2412 .

Some of the required courses have prerequisites, so students should declare the minor as early as possible to plan their schedule. Students declaring the minor as Sophomores and Juniors can usually complete the degree on schedule. Students interested in the minor should begin taking classes as early as possible after declaration.
