Youth Ministry Minor

The Youth Ministry minor is a program of study intended to prepare students intellectually and experientially for a wide variety of ministerial and church-related vocations, religious studies, and seminary. In addition to courses specifically devoted to the theology and skills of ministry, the minor also provides opportunities for supervised fieldwork and training in areas such as Young Life, local churches, and other institutions, agencies, or organizations that are pastoral in nature. Students also benefit from the encouragement and nurturing available from faculty and staff connected to the program and from advisement concerning vocational opportunities. The Youth Ministry minor requires 21 semester hours consisting of the following:
