Minor in Technology and Youth
The landscape for learning can take many shapes and happen any time with the technology available today. Creating meaningful learning experiences for youth takes special skills. With a minor in Technology and Youth, you can complement your current major and improve your career competitiveness for jobs which require technology to educate a variety of youth audiences.
Students who complete this minor will be able to combine knowledge of child, family and community development; learning theory; and have competency with various media and information technologies in order to design, develop, implement and evaluate technology-based learning experiences.
How Can I Learn More?
Although a minor is not required for all students, some students choose to add a minor to complement their degree program. Students can declare some minors by meeting with the College of Education and Human Ecology Academic Program Coordinator, while others require permission from the department offering the minor. Students must declare their minor at least by the time the graduation application is submitted. Early declaration is highly encouraged. Once the minor program is filed in the college office, any changes must be approved. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Student Services
