The youth studies is a 16-credit undergraduate minor that addresses youth as an idea, youth as young people, youthhood as the everyday lives of young people, and the responses of communities to this population. Participants in the youth studies minor learn about and critically analyze at a beginning level the families of ideas, models, concepts, discourses, and ways of understanding, responding to, and working with young people. Participants craft their unique program from among the required designated courses to prepare for graduate training/education in the many scholarly and youth work professional fields.
