Youth Advocacy

Students interested in pursuing a minor in Education must complete and submit an application describing the rationale for their minor along with the list of courses the student wishes to take (applications are available via the Education Department and the Advising Office). After approval from the Department, students will be notified and their status will be updated with the Registrar's Office. 

Education majors who wish to specialize in an area of interest can do so by completing the requirements of their perspective majors and any additional coursework within a concentration.  Students in majors other than Education complete the courses within the concentration and then will apply for an Education minor in the specialized area.

The Youth Advocacy minor provides students with interdisciplinary perspectives on the conditions for youth in communities as well as the societal and political factors which may contribute to the ways in which communities can respond to youth needs.  The minor will allow students to gain an understanding of best practices in positive youth development as well as develop a skill set for working in a variety of setting with children and adolescents.
