Prerequisites for Declaring Human Development

**Please review these prerequisites carefully as the requirements have changed**

Before a student can declare Human Development, the following prerequisites must be met:

  • Sophomore standing (completion of at least 30 units)
  • Overall GPA of 2.5*

Completion of the following GE courses with a grade of C

  • GE area A2
  • GE area A3
  • Biological Foundation (Any GE area B2 (Biological Sciences) course)
  • Elementary Statistics (MATH 165; in GE area B4)
  • Social Science Foundation (Intro to Cultural Anthropology (ANTH 203), Intro to Psychology (PSYCH 250) OR Intro to Sociology (SOCI 201))
  • Linguistic Foundation (Intro to Linguistic Anthropology (ANTH 200) OR Intro to Linguistics (ENGL 203))

"Enrollment" in or completion of prerequisite courses with less than a C no longer fulfills prerequisite courses. Students who meet these prerequisites must apply to the major during the application period (once before the start of each fall semester and once before the start of each spring semester). Applications will NOT be accepted outside of these times.
