Program Description

Youth development is an emerging professional field. It has a positive orientation, meaning its focus is on promoting the positive development of youth, and it is an applied field, with professionals who put developmental research and theory into practice in structuring and implementing programs and services for adolescents.

A master's degree in youth development prepares students for careers in organizations such as 4-H, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, non-profits, faith based groups, community recreation, juvenile justice facilities, middle and high school programs, extension services, and military youth programs.

The online Master of Science in Human Development and Family Science: Youth Development option is a collaborative, inter-institutional program offered by Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance (GPIDEA), a web-based distance education program. The program requires 37 credits, including a Master's paper or thesis. Students can complete the program in two to three years.
