Policy Statement - 03-07 Child Development and Family Studies, Minor in

Minor in Child Development and Family Studies (FCS_UM06)

This new minor was recommended by the Academic Senate on March 27, 2003 and approved by the President on May 12, 2003. 

The Child Development and Family Studies (CDFS) minor offers the opportunity to take a concentration of courses focusing on children and families.  By providing students with an aggregate of CDFS courses students will be better prepared to assume the duties within a variety of careers relating to children and families in an array of settings.


Students seeking a minor in CDFS must meet all prerequisite course requirements.  In addition, students must maintain a "C" or better in all courses required for the minor.  The minor requires 21 total units: nine units of core courses consisting of FCS 111, 312I, and 319I and 12 units selected from FCS 211, 214, 311, 314, 409, 410, 411, 412, 413, 414, 415, and 418.  The minor in Child Development and Family Studies will not be available to Child Development and Family Studies majors.
