Child Study Minor

18 credits

The Child Study interdisciplinary minor is designed to enhance students’ understanding of their own developmental history and their sensitivity to the diversity of developmental contexts and pathways. It focuses on understanding children (birth through adolescence) and their families from a variety of perspectives. This program enhances students’ preparation to work with children and families in a range of social service or educational settings.


Family Studies majors with a minor in Child Study will take Child Study-approved related courses to complete the Child Study minor, in collaboration with their major advisor.
