The Health and Human Development Advising office is a friendly, welcoming resource
for HHD students. Knowledgeable advisors provide timely, detailed information to
students and work with them to develop an appropriate plan of study. We clarify and
assist in the understanding of curriculum, graduation requirements, and university
policies and procedures, and also participate in new student recruitment and orientation.
Students majoring in Community Health, Early Childhood Education & Child Services,
Health & Human Performance (Exercise Science and Kinesiology options), Health Enhancement
K-12, Hospitality Management (Food Enterprise, Lodging and Facilities Management,
and Restaurant Management: Farm-to-Table options), and Human Development and Family
Science (Human Development & Family Science and Family & Consumer Sciences Education
options), as well as freshmen and sophomores in Food and Nutrition (Dietetics and
Nutrition Science options) meet with the HHD Advising Office every semester. Sustainable
Foods & Bioenergy Systems students are advised by Mary Stein, and Food & Nutrition
juniors and seniors are advised by Melody Anacker.
HHD majors focus on well-being in a variety of ways. There are seven majors and ten
options ranging from majors more focused on math and science to those more focused
on the social sciences. Check out the links above for more information!
We're easily found on the NW corner of
Marga Hosaeus Fitness Center!

Advising Tips and Recommendations
- Sequencing of classes is important; overlapping core with required classes saves time
- Taking random classes that work in one's personal schedule will work for a while but,
in the long run, those courses will not count toward a degree and there will be financial
- Check before dropping classes! The minimum number of credits to be a full-time student
is 12. Dropping below this can be a problem for financial aid, student housing, and
athletic eligibility. Some scholarships may require a higher minimum number of credits
- Taking advice from friends, even if they're in the same major, is not a good idea.
These friends may be in a different catalog and have different degree requirements.
- All substitutions must have written approval.
