Suggested Academic Plans
Suggested Academic Plans are based on a student’s semester of entry to Penn State and serve as a guide when scheduling courses. Students should work with their academic adviser and run “Academic Requirements” and “What If” reports in LionPATH to ensure that they are staying on track for graduation.
Application Focus Areas
Within the Human-Centered Design and Development major, students must take a series of courses in one of the application focus areas listed below or work with their academic adviser to create a custom focus. Application focus areas allow students to develop more specialized knowledge in a specific domain. Course requirements and additional information for each area can be found on the University Bulletin. Please note, that Application Focus Areas can be found by scrolling all the way to the bottom of the Suggested Academic Plan page.
