Question: Can I complete two options in my HDEV Major?
Yes, you can complete two options in HDEV and have them both appear as
'Concentrations' on your transcripts (and diploma if desired). These must be
from the four pre-approved age-related options and not the specialized sequence
alternative which cannot appear on your diploma, but you may describe your
specialization on your resume, etc. To do two Options, you take 4880 and 4891
once each, and must also complete the 16 other units for the first option as
well as 16 units for the second option. For example, to complete options in
Childhood and Adolescence, you take HDEV 4700 (Childhood Development) and select
three electives from that list AND you take HDEV 4400 (Adolescent Development)
and select three electives form that list. Although there is some overlap in
the lists of electives for options, your 16 units in each option should be
unique - that is, no overlap, or 'double counting' of classes in two options.
This principle applies to completing three options, though it occurs rarely.
