Youth Development Studies

Youth Development Studies

Today’s youth are dynamic, challenging, diverse and teeming with potential. Our communities need to accept responsibility in fostering their success and preparation for a successful adulthood. A youth development leader who wants to facilitate the development of this age group must be able to advocate effectively in the community for youth and create opportunities for their success. This degree program provides the knowledge and skills to build design, deliver and evaluate relevant youth programs and experiences and collaborate successfully with educational institutions, community agencies and organizations, and business and corporate partners.

A unique degree program, the youth development studies major at Clemson is a part-time (two courses consecutively per semester), online, degree-completion program intended to serve professionals and leaders currently working or volunteering in youth-serving organizations. Students who enroll in the program must have met Clemson degree-completion requirements with at least 33 general education credit hours and 27 hours in approved elective credits from another accredited institution.

Students are required to attend a weekly synchronous class in Adobe Connect for 90 minutes (see class schedule for time)

Take a look around, and if you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to contact program coordinator William Quinn, Ph.D., (wquinn@clemson.edu) or Alexis Ward, student services coordinator (award7@clemson.edu).
