Developmental Disabilities Minor
The undergraduate interdisciplinary minor program in developmental disabilities is administered by the Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities (NCED) through the College of Education.
The undergraduate program in developmental disabilities is offered as an interdisciplinary minor in conjunction with any academic major, or as additional credits upon completion of the requirements for an undergraduate degree in an established discipline. Eighteen credits are required, and a minimum of 9 credits must be taken in disciplines outside of one's major degree program.
Three core classes (9 credits) are required of all students: EDU 203, Introduction to Special Education; CHS 360, Disability Issues; and EDSP 432, Serving Individuals with Disabilities and Their Families.
The additional 9 credits must be selected from a list of Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities-approved courses offered in the following disciplines: Community Health Sciences, Special Education, Education, Human Development and Family Studies, Psychology, and Social Work.
Graduate specialization can be added to degree programs.
