Admission to the Human Development Program

Human development major working with children

Human Development is an impacted major and as such, students who wish to declare Human Development must meet specific prerequisite requirements. Students trying to declare Human Development are strongly encouraged to meet with the HD Coordinator during her office hours and join the SSU-Pre-Majors Listserv. Aside from checking the HD website, this is the only way for students interested in the Human Development major to get information about the major and the admissions process.

Please click on the 'Prerequisites' tab to view the prerequisite requirements. Click on a specific semester to view the application procedure and timeframe for that semester. Students who do not meet the prerequisite requirements, do not follow the application guidelines, or miss the application period will be required to wait until the next application period to apply to the major.
