Adolescent and Youth Development Minor (HDFS)
The departments of Human Development and Family Studies and Recreation Management and Policy offer an interdisciplinary minor designed to give students an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills regarding adolescence and youth development. The two required courses offer a foundation in theory, research, and practice, and students choose three additional courses in order to better prepare students to work with this age group.
