Human Development and Family Studies, A.A. to B.A.Ed.

This is a suggested course plan. It is highly recommended that you meet regularly with your academic advisor to determine your course selection and progress toward graduation.

Students who transfer to UNC under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) have all lower-level General Education requirements completed, but must complete these requirements through transfer or UNC coursework: Global Language, Research and Discovery, Lifetime Fitness, Communication Beyond Carolina, Campus Life Experience, and, where applicable, Supplemental General Education. Students who do not transfer in under the CAA should work closely with their advisor to determine which requirements apply to them for the IDEAs in Action General Education curriculum.

This Catalog also includes a complete list of requirements for the Human Development and Family Studies, B.A.Ed. degree.

EDUC 181, EDUC 408, EDUC 583, and EDUC 698 are included individually in the recommended terms.  The remaining core courses include EDUC 401, EDUC 403, EDUC 405, and EDUC 501. Core courses are generally offered in both fall and spring terms and the remaining four do not have a prescribed sequencing.

3

Students must take EDUC 408 prior to enrolling in EDUC 583. Students must see the SOE director of advising for permission to enroll. EDUC 583 must be taken in the semester immediately preceding the internship semester.

4

Students must complete one diversity/equity focus course, one leadership requirement course, and four courses from one of two concentration (Family Life Education or Child and Family Health) lists or from the elective course list.  Course lists can be found on the degree requirements.

Students in either concentration may elect to complete courses in the other concentration but can only declare one concentration. For example, a student in the CFH concentration may complete courses in the FLE concentration as part of their general major electives.

5

Students can consider a summer internship where feasible to meet program milestones.

During the internship semester, it is preferred that students only take one class with the internship. However, students will be allowed to enroll in up to six credit hours in addition to the required nine credit hour internship course, for a maximum of 15 hours. Students will not be allowed to register for 18 hours. The internship site must be approved by the HDFS program in the semester preceding the internship.

6

Students have the option to take a course over the summer to reduce the course load in fall or spring semester.  Alternatively, a minor course may double count in both the major and minor, or be transferred from the NC Community College to reduce the number of courses needed at UNC.  Students will not be required to take a course over the summer, but in this case they may need to take one 18 hour semester to meet all requirements.
