The child studies minor at Truman gives you 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 toward 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, you would likely find this interdisciplinary minor particularly engaging if you are majoring in communication, communication disorders, creative writing, education, English, exercise science, justice systems, nursing, psychology, health science or political science.
