Accelerated Masters - Core Areas of Study
UNH juniors and seniors with a 3.2 GPA or higher now have the opportunity to apply for admission to the Accelerated Core Areas Program in either Child Development or Adolescent Development. Accepted students will begin the accelerated program in their senior year, and will be permitted to take up to 12 credits for dual credit. See the UNH Graduate School website for general information on accelerated master's programs.
Some of the Core Area courses are offered every other year, as a result, a student's course of study will vary based on the student's year of entry. For the spring of senior year:
- Child Development students could be taking HDFS 930: Child Development in Context plus up to 8 elective courses credits.
- Adolescent Development students could be taking HDFS 950: Contemporary Issues in Adolescent Development plus up to 8 elective courses credits.
- Child Development and Adolescent Development students could be taking up to 12 elective course credits and taking HDFS 930/HDFS 950 as a first year graduate student.
