The child psychology minor is designed for students who are interested in the theory and application of psychology to children. Such students might be interested in working with quality child care programming, education, prevention/early intervention work or in areas of social services in which a working knowledge of children's development and emotional needs is essential. The minor fits well with other majors including social work, human services and education.
This course introduces students to scientific and applied psychology, and suggests its application to everyday life. The course familiarizes students with concepts, principles, research methods and theories of psychology.
