Education and Human Development Major (EHDJ)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

The Education and Human Development major provides students who wish to graduate from the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) the opportunity to pursue educational goals which cannot readily be accommodated in the majors offered in the CEHD academic departments. Students will work with the designated CEHD staff advisor to create a guided program of study that will then be approved by the faculty program coordinator.

Program requirements include:

  1. all WMU Essential Studies and WMU degree requirements,
  2. at least one course with a practicum, field experience, or off-campus experiential learning component,
  3. a minimum of 45 major credits articulated with a CEHD advisor and approved by the EHDJ faculty program coordinator,
  4. at least 30 of the 45 major credits must be from CEHD departments, and
  5. WFED 3050 - Career and Employability Skills, in which students will complete a capstone portfolio that includes evidence of meeting all EHDJ major learning outcomes.

The Education and Human Development major does not require a minor. It cannot be declared as a second major and students who have completed an undergraduate degree will not be able to enroll in the Education and Human Development major as a second bachelor’s degree.

Any undergraduate student in the college of Education and Human Development who has completed at least 77 credits (or will complete 77 credits within the currently enrolled term) and has at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA is eligible to apply for the Education and Human Development major. Students interested in this option should contact the CEHD Director of Advising to begin the planning process. Those applying to the major are expected to develop a written statement outlining how their educational goals align with the learning objectives for the major and how the proposed course of study accomplishes the goals.
