Coursework required for the different Human Development and Family Studies programs is listed in the University Catalog.
You should conduct a “what-if” analysis to see what courses you will need to take if you declare an Human Development and Family Studies major right now. Instructions for using Degree Works are available through the Registrar’s website. Pay particular attention to the instructions for how to conduct a “what-if” analysis. When conducting this analysis, make sure that you select from the pull-down menu options (a) the current academic year, (b) a program of “Bachelor of Science in HHS,” or “Bachelor of Science in HHS (online), (c) a major of “Human Dev and Family Studies” or “Early Childhood Development & Education,” and (d) the concentration in which you are interested if you have selected the “Early Childhood Development & Education” major.

Instructions for how to register for classes:
Look at your audit in Degree Works to see what classes you need to take.
While you are looking at your degree audit, consult the instructions that appear above and make a list of courses you may want to take in the upcoming semester.
Use the class schedule option in UNCGenie to locate courses on your list that have seats available and meet your scheduling constraints. Be sure to check the list of footnotes for each section of each course to make sure it is a section you can register for. Some courses are restricted to students in specific degree programs or have pre-requisites that you may not yet have. Take your time getting to know how the class schedule option in UNCGenie works. You can search for courses based on departments or based on whether they meet various UNCG requirements (e.g., General Education categories, Speaking Intensive, Writing Intensive).
As you locate possible courses, write down their CRNs.
When you are ready to register, enter the CRNs of the sections into the boxes in the Add/Drop Classes section of UNCGenie.
