Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
This eighteen-credit hour minor is available to all Columbia College undergraduates. It is designed to support their understandings of children and adolescents so that they may enhance their career options, such as illustrating or writing children's books, developing video games, or designing and marketing clothes for toddlers or pre-adolescents.
Students will develop basic understandings of human development; the intersection of the roles of child, family, and community; characteristics of children with exceptional and diverse needs; and have opportunities to apply these concepts to their major.
