Child Studies Minor
When you pursue a child studies minor, you study the physical, psychological, cognitive, and social progress of children. Whether you’re interested in the developmental influences of media, political debates, or social policies, this program can provide insight on how to improve the well-being of children and adolescents.
The study is applicable to any discipline, but can be especially engaging if you plan to work toward a degree in communication, communication disorders, creative writing, education, English, exercise science, justice systems, nursing, psychology, health science or political science.
If you want to turn this interdisciplinary studies minor into a major, consider Truman’s interdisciplinary studies major.
