Adolescent and Youth Development Minor (HDFS)
The interdisciplinary minor in adolescent and youth development is offered by the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and the Department of Recreation Management and Policy. The minor is designed to provide students with an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills regarding adolescence and youth development.
Required courses offer a foundation in theory, research, and practice for all minors. Students select three additional courses from a wide array of more specialized offerings from collaborating departments. To assist students in developing a cohesive plan of study for their minor, a simple application process is required. Only students who have completed the required coursework will be identified as having achieved a minor in adolescent and youth development.
