The minor in YMCA Professional Leadership is an interdisciplinary theoretical and skill-based program that prepares YMCA Professional Studies students and other interested students for positions of leadership in the YMCA and other human service organizations. Students who complete the required 18 credits in this program will be positioned to enter the YMCA movement as a career professional.
Note: An internship experience in a YMCA setting is strongly encouraged, but not required through your major.
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.
