Return to Programs Sorted by Major/Minor Return to: Programs Sorted by Major/Minor

  • Grade Requirements: A grade of C or better in courses used toward the minor.
  • Credit Hour Requirements: A minimum of 18 credit hours, of which at least 6 must be upper division courses (courses numbered 3000 and above).  Students will receive the final grade they have earned in each course. If a grade in a minor course does not meet the minimum requirement for graduation, the student may retake the course once. In special circumstances, by the judgment of the department chair, the student may petition to the Family Studies or Early Childhood/Early Childhood Education Committee, as appropriate, to graduate with the lower grade.

To be allowed to work with children in the Melba S. Lehner Children’s School for lab practicum, students must have clearance of criminal background check approved by the Utah Department of Health, Child Care Licensing Program.  Look for more information on the Weber State University Fingerprinting Office website (www.weber.edu/fingerprinting).
