Students majoring in psychology, early childhood education, special education, sociology, social services, public health, law and justice, physical and health education, and recreation and tourism may benefit from the child development minor. Students in the minor will learn about theories of child development; cutting-edge research about how children develop in multiple domains, with a focus on how development occurs in the context of family, community, and culture; and skills for practical application of child development. Completing the minor will enhance students’ competitiveness for jobs involving interaction with children in a variety of disciplines.
