Community, Youth, and Education Studies Overview
Housed in the Education Department, Community, Youth, and Education Studies (CYES) is an interdisciplinary major that bridges Community Development, Critical Youth Studies, and Education Studies. In addition to the power of interdisciplinarity, CYES majors and minors engage in social justice praxis. Toward that end, students in the major take a sequence of 11-courses that guides and supports them to critically interrogate their social world, reflexively examine their social location within that world, and engage in social change. The aim of CYES is to prepare students for engaged scholarship and leadership in the 21st century, working for social justice across a wide-range of educational, cultural, institutional, and linguistic boundaries and borders.
