Undergraduate Programs

Child and Youth Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that provides students with a scholarly and experiential understanding of childhood and adolescence.

The minor, which is open to all majors, educates students about the physical, psychological, spiritual, social, and cultural aspects of human development during the first 18 years of life. It integrates the many child- and youth-focused courses and service learning experiences across disciplines at USF to provide a structured course of study.

As I prepare for my Master's in School Psychology, I know the minor in Child & Youth Studies helped me understand more about the systems and networks that impact children. I want to be a school psychologist to impact the lives of students, their families, and communities for the better. Thanks to USF, I'm one step closer to changing the world.”
