I have to have a minor with the major I changed to. I did not want to spend the extra time to finish any traditional minor. I found out I could appeal and be awarded a minor area of concentration instead of a minor.
Basically the same thing but saves me a LOT of time.
I had to fill out a form stating all the classes I took under that heading. I wrote down my science classes and asked for concentration in science.
The requirements state you have to have 15-18 credits and at least 3 must be upper division (300 and up)
I ended up putting down like 29 credits in science ranging from chem 100 to mbios 305.
They approved it.
So now when I graduate my diploma will say "Human Development, Early Childhood Education with a minor area of concentration in Science".
Also, it saves me a year.
