The College of Human Ecology is committed to student success on every level. As Cornell makes decisions about the fall 2020 semester, we will update this website and communicate with our incoming students directly to keep you informed and supported.
We will be contacting you via your cornell.edu email address, so be sure to activate your NetID and regularly check your official Cornell email account for updates.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as Cornell University works to find the safest way for us all to begin the fall 2020 semester. We look forward to working with you!
During orientation, we will welcome you into our Department and provide you with an overview of the major. If you have any questions pertaining to the departmental orientation, then please contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) at email@example.com
Below, we have listed the information most relevant to you as Human Development majors, but please also review the new student information from the College of Human Ecology.
HD 1150 Introduction to Human Development: Infancy and Childhood (required)
PSYCH 1101 Introduction to Psychology
An introductory course in Biology - If you are NOT a pre-med student, enroll in BIOG 1140: Foundations of Biology. This course is offered only in Fall semesters so we suggest you take it in your first semester, if you can. (Pre-meds see below.)
PLEASE NOTE: Students who transfer to Human Development should follow the curriculum sheet issued for the year in which they transferred. For example, a sophomore who transferred to HD in Fall 2018 would follow the 2018-2019 curriculum sheet.
