Youth and Children Minor




Minor in Youth and Children: Texts and Contexts

This is an interdisciplinary minor that will allow students to integrate youth-focused courses in order to gain foundational knowledge of young people, the socio-historical conditions that shape young people's cultures, and the formal properties of texts produced for and by young people. Courses in Youth and Children's studies will provide students with exposure to the historical and social contexts for the conditions structuring youths' diverse, lived experiences. Courses in English will allow students to consider how these experiences are represented and further shaped by the literary and cultural texts created for this specific category of readers and viewers.
