Areas of Study: Youth Ministry
If you are interested in working with young people in developing their faith and spirituality; leading discussions of issues important to youth; and/or working in a church context, consider adding a Youth Ministry Certificate to your major.
This program is open to you regardless of major. The curriculum integrates courses from Bible and religion, conflict resolution and social work and includes a youth ministry placement (10–12 hours a week for one semester) in a local congregation. Our students have found the placement experience personally rewarding—as added benefits, it’s an attractive addition to a resume and it provides training for future employment.
