Adolescents, Community, and Education
The adolescents, community, and education minor is designed to introduce students from across the university to the benefits and challenges of working with children and adolescents in school and community settings. All coursework will be housed in the College of Education, yet some courses require outside fieldwork. Coursework is divided into 3 main categories that can be taken in any order. Category I, Adolescence in a Multicultural Society, includes courses about how adolescents learn, develop, and negotiate their unique and changing roles in a multicultural society. Category II, Adolescents and Schooling, focuses on educational issues directly affecting adolescents today. Category III, Working with Adolescents, includes courses that will involve community internships in school and non-school settings that directly affect the lives of adolescents.
Category I: Adolescence in a Multicultural Society (6-9 units)
Category II: Adolescents and Schooling (6-9 units)
Category III: Working with Adolescents (3-6 units)
The program will help prepare students for careers related to working with adolescents or adolescent issues outside of a traditional school setting.
