Human Development/Institute for Child Study (EDHD)

The 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.  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 must take EDHD 306 and choose other courses from at least two of the other areas of human development study, as outlined below. Students interested in taking this minor should contact the Human Development undergraduate advisor, Ms. Eileen Kramer, at ekramer@umd.edu or 301-405-8432 for more information or to arrange an advising appointment.
