The Early Childhood Development and Education minor is intended to provide a limited, but substantive experience in the fields of development and early childhood education. The minor is intended for University students enrolled outside the Early Childhood Development and Education major and does not lead to teacher certification or admission to the College of Community Innovation and Education. The minor is appropriate for students who are seeking an enhanced understanding of education and development or are considering a career working with young children in the fields of early childhood education, social work, psychology, or health services. This minor will strengthen the marketability of the student’s major program. This minor is available for students in the 2003 catalog year and beyond.
