Award Type: CCL
The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Adolescent Studies focuses on adolescent development, problem solving, and family relationships in contemporary America. Included are courses that center on the development of skills and techniques to work with adolescents and their families, and strengthen adolescent and family relationships. This certificate is designed for students who are preparing to work or those who are presently employed in professions that require interaction with adolescents and/or adolescent-related issues. Individuals who would be enhanced by the CCL in Adolescent Studies include school personnel, organization leaders, law enforcement personnel, religious leaders, parks and recreational staff, case managers, health educators, outreach workers, and parents. This certificate may be expanded into an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Family Development. See a program coordinator for advisement.
Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses within the program. This program is not eligible for Title IV Federal Financial Aid.
