From Purdue,

A dependent clause is a group of words that contains a subject and verb but does not express a complete thought. A dependent clause cannot be a sentence.

For example, in the sentence 'When I was studying grammar, I learned about clauses,' the first part, 'when I was studying grammar,' is a dependent clause because it doesn't fully express a thought; it needs the second clause as well in order to form a complete sentence.
