Childhood & Adolescence Studies

The Certificate in Childhood and Adolescence Studies covers topics related to children and their social worlds. Through its classes, students examine how race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability impact development and cognition.

UWM's Certificate in Childhood and Adolescence Studies (CAS) is an interdisciplinary program built around a core of liberal arts courses. The primary course offerings are in sociology and psychology, with other complementary courses drawn in from health sciences, social work, education, and criminal justice.

Students complete the certificate with a better understanding of children and adolescence and how they are affected by society, culture, religion, politics, economics, health, and education policy. The certificate complements a number of different majors including education, psychology, sociology, social work and political science, and can make graduates more marketable for jobs that involve working with children.
