The Program

Youth Studies is an emerging multidisciplinary field that spans the humanities, social sciences, the arts and sciences. Integrating theory, research, public policy and practice, Youth Studies provides an opportunity to deepen students’ understanding of the relationship of youth and society through critical thinking, research and writing.

The Advanced Certificate in Youth Studies responds to the needs of those who work in the youth services field and is innovative in its approach to providing a pathway for professional development. Graduates of the program are better prepared to design and offer programs that exemplify best practices in youth work, to engage in meaningful research with youth, and to develop youth policy that caters to the needs of youth, communities and families in the public education, juvenile justice, social welfare and medical systems.
