So yeah

So I decided last week that I'm changing my major. Exciting but scary. Kind of shitty too since it's going to be a lot of work for me. But oh well. I don't care. I'll still have a minor in psychology, so that's cool. I'm changing my major to Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration on Early Childhood Developement and Education. It's more of what I want to do with my life. So I'm very excited. I have a meeting with my HDFS professor on Tuesday to discuss my paper topics/my change of major. So I'll know what I have to do to switch then. 

Anyways, here's some information about the program in general, and then my concentration:

"The undergraduate major leads to the BA, and the graduate program leads to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Human Development and Family Studies"

"The Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) concentration is designed for students who are interested in working with children from birth to five years of age in early care and education settings. Training at the Child Development Labs includes child development theory, curriculum development, fieldwork/observation, and a student teaching practicum. Students who successfully complete the course sequence may apply to be a Head Teacher in a child care center in Connecticut; new options for teaching credentials are also being developed.  CAREER OPPORTUNITIES: Infant & Toddler Child Care Specialist , Child Development Specialist, Preschool Early Childhood Teacher , Head Start Program Coordinator "

Alright. That's about it. Updates about life later on.
