The Minor in Children's Studies provides an opportunity for students to enhance their knowledge of children and child culture through interdisciplinary exploration of child-related issues. This program is designed to be of interest to students who wish to pursue child-related emphases in their major disciplines, such as children's literature, child psychology, children's history and culture, pediatrics, juvenile justice, or social work with children, or for those who wish to learn more about the subject of childhood from multidisciplinary frames of reference. The minor will also provide a foundation for those students who intend to go to professional or graduate school to pursue child-centered research interests.
Please note that these requirements are for the 2010-2012 course catalog. Students enrolled under prior catalogs should check with one of the English Department's Academic Advisors for those requirements.
