The YMCA professional studies minor will prepare you to grow and develop into a YMCA leader. The minor provides an opportunity for all students, not just those interested in a YMCA career, to develop their academic skill-set through courses, volunteer work, and networking.

The YMCA professional studies minor is specialized to most majors at the College, including psychology, business management, sport management, recreation management, applied exercise science, and movement and sports studies. Students take six courses for the YMCA minor, three of which are required classes that need to be taken within the student’s major.  YMCA internships also are available, which the Office of YMCA Relations will set up.
