To earn a minor in HDFS, you must complete 18 credits of HDFS course work with a grade of "C" or better.
As a student who minors in HDFS, you are encouraged to tailor the focus of your minor by selecting courses that fit your interests and complement your major area of study.
Requirements of the minor include:
- HDFS 129: Introduction to Human Development and Family Studies (3 credits)
- 9 credits of HDFS courses from any level
- 6 credits of 400-level HDFS courses
Core Courses (3 credits)
Elective Courses (select 15 credits)
At least 6 credits must be at the 400 level.
Note: As part of the course planning process, consult with an adviser as early as possible to be sure you will meet the prerequisites for courses you plan to use toward completion of the minor. For instance, with proper planning, completing HDFS 229 (which is a prerequisite of HDFS 428) can count toward the 9-credit block of HDFS courses from any level. Then, you will be eligible to take HDFS 428, which would count toward the 6-credit block of 400-level HDFS courses.
