The minor in human development and family studies (HD FS) can give you an advantage in your chosen career by helping you understand human development and issues related to individuals, families, and communities.

By examining topics that range from how human beings develop over their life spans to resolving family conflict, you can complement your major course work with knowledge and skills about the ways people think, behave, and interact with each other throughout their lives.

This minor is open to all interested undergraduate World Campus students who meet the prerequisites, but has been most popular among students majoring in criminal justice, international politics, law and society, letters, arts, and sciences, nursing, organizational leadership, political science, and psychology.
