Child Studies Minor

Study Across Disciplines

The child studies minor at Truman gives students the opportunity to focus on the physical, psychological, cognitive, and social development of children; the creation and critique of art and media focused on and directed towards children; and the political debates and social policies that influence children in an interdisciplinary way.

While the health, personal development, and well being of children and adolescents is pertinent to every major and discipline of study, students in communication, communication disorders, creative writing, education, English, exercise science, justice systems, nursing, psychology, health science, and political science would likely find this interdisciplinary minor particularly engaging.
