Minor in YMCA Professional Studies
The minor in YMCA Professional Leadership is an interdisciplinary theoretical and skill-based program that prepares YMCA Career Candidates and other interested students for positions of leadership in the YMCA and other human service organizations. Students who complete the required 20 credits in this program will be eligible to apply for Senior Director Certification upon completion of one year of post-graduate full-time employment as a YMCA professional.
Many of the courses required for minors may also fulfill or partially fulfill a general education category. For more information, see the general education requirements section. Some courses required for minors may also satisfy courses required for majors. Students pursuing a minor should notify and consult with the appropriate department chair and complete the appropriate paperwork with the Registrar’s Office so that it can be noted on the transcript.
