    Students declaring the Human Development Major may choose from the following 5 Options: Early Childhood Development, Childhood Development, Adolescent Development, Adult Development and Gerontology, or Women's Development.

    It is important for all students to consult a Human Development faculty advisor in order to determine major requirements for graduation.

  2. What courses do I need to complete for a Human Development Minor?
    A Minor in Human Development requires the completion of 24 units of 3000 or 4000 level courses with the prefix HDEV.

  3. How do I apply for graduation?
    It is important to start the process of applying for graduation by no later than the second week of the quarter prior to the quarter in which you graduate. Pay the filing fee on MyCSUEB by clicking on "Apply for Graduation" (or you can pay in the SA building). Have a GE check done at Academic Advising and Career Education (AACE) (or with any other counselor that you may have worked with, such as someone who works with Project IMPACT, Project EXCEL, EOP, etc.) Also do a Major Check with the Human Development Department. If you have completed the requirements for a Minor, complete a Minor Check with your Minor Department.

  4. What is a Major Check?  How do I do a Major Check?
    Before you can graduate with your bachelor's degree, you are required to complete a Major Check as official confirmation that you have completed the requirements of the Major Department. During the quarter prior to the quarter in which you graduate (or earlier), you can fill out the appropriate Major Check form with your Faculty Advisor during advising hours. Or, you can email a Faculty Advisor who has online office hours to request that s/he fill out your Major Check form.

  5. Who can do academic advising in the HDEV Department? What are their office hours

  6. Can I complete two options in my Human Development major?
    Yes, you can complete two options in HDEV and have them both appear as 'Concentrations' on your transcripts. Although there is some overlap in the lists of electives for options, it is a university rule that three courses in each option should be unique - in other words, you may only 'double count' two courses. This principle also applies to completing three options.

    Please note, in order for the title(s) of the option(s) to appear on your degree diploma, you must request it when filing for graduation with the university. In the following link http://www20.csueastbay.edu/ecat/general-info/bacc-degree-info.html#option, you can find the follow official language about options: "An option can appear on your diploma if you request it when filing for graduation. If you wish to complete more than one option and have the additional option(s) recorded, each must differ by at least three courses and nine units from any other option you complete."
