Early Development and Education Minor

Contact: James Johnson, jej4@psu.edu (ERDED_UMNR)

The Intercollege Minor in Early Development and Education builds upon existing courses across the university and especially ones found in the College of Education and the College of Health and Human Development. The minor affords the opportunity for students to study practices and policies informed by research and theory covering the period in human development from prenatal to three years. The minor prepares graduates majoring in a variety of fields such as education, human development and family studies, psychology, speech communication, nutrition, and others to have a deeper understanding of this period of the life cycle with an emphasis on the transltion of this knowledge to applied settings.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
