Possible Changes to Upper-Level Human Development Course Pre-requisites

Similar to the changes that will take effect for Psychology in Fall 2009, Human Development is considering requiring a research methods course (e.g., COMM SCI 301) as a pre-requisite to some upper-level courses in the major. We don’t know exactly what pre-requisites for Human Development courses will look like for Fall 2009, but these discussions should emphasize the importance of taking both Statistics and Foundations for Social Research as soon as possible! We do believe that having exposure to statistics and research methods will enhance your ability to do well in subsequent upper-level courses in the major.
