Child Development and Social Intervention (Minor)

Program Description

This 16-credit minor introduces students to the primary factors that influence the contexts in which children and adolescents develop. The program exposes students to the prevention and intervention efforts addressing psychological, social, educational, and health problems. Students who successfully complete the minor will have gained a solid knowledge base that will help prepare them for graduate studies in psychology. This minor is open to all undergraduate students at NYU with the exception of students majoring in Applied Psychology through Steinhardt.
