Child, Youth, and Family Studies (Minor)

School of Social Work

The Child, Youth, and Family Studies minor is a valuable addition for students in disciplines concerned with the relationship between individual children and youth, their families, and the community systems in which they live (including sociology, communications, psychology, women and gender studies, and others). Through the major, these students will apply theory in the real world and build practice experience geared toward direct work in the field. Students in professional majors (like social work, community health, speech and hearing sciences, and more) will also benefit from the minor’s focus on children, youth, and families as a distinct practice population.

A minor in Child, Youth, and Family Studies consists of 26 credits.
