As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve added a number of courses in Human Development and Psychology in recent years. Although we’re happy to bring you these new options, if the class was brand new (or didn’t exist yet!) under your “catalog year” in SIS, our lovely computer system will not automatically recognize the class as meeting a requirement that it might meet. So…here’s a list of some relatively new classes and what they “count for.”
HUM DEV 302 Developmental Research Methods: the research methods course requirement for the Human Development major (an acceptable and encouraged substitution for students from older catalog years which specify COMM SCI 301)
HUM DEV 443 Spirituality and Development: upper-level elective for the Human Development major/minor
HUM DEV 483L Gender and Aging: upper-level elective for the Human Development major/minor
PSYCH 305 Psychology of Stereotyping and Prejudice: upper-level elective for the Psychology major/minor and Ethnic Studies & Writing Emphasis class for General Education
PSYCH 424 Psychology of Emotion: upper-level elective for the Psychology major/minor
PSYCH 483F Child Clinical Psychology: upper-level elective for the Psychology major/minor
If your major or minor was declared under the current (2010-11) or very recent catalog, then these classes may automatically slot in to fill these requirements. If not, though, you may need to ask the Human Development or Psychology chairperson to sign a course substitution form for you to get them to count. Please do not ask for those forms right now. We will deal with those paperwork requests or issues during the Spring semester once we have a stable list of actual enrollments for these classes.
